Top tips for a Imperial Wharf Home Buyers Survey


Imperial Wharf, although in the main consisting of properties built in the last 20 years of which most are very modern apartments, still contains some 300 year-old cottages and 19th century streets and Sandford Manor House, in Rewell Street is a Grade II* listed house probably built in the late 17th century.

Imperial Wharf itself takes its name from the adjacent redevelopment of a brownfield, former industrial, site, which was developed initially into a luxury 1,800 apartment river-side complex which has grown ever since.

There are a fair number of properties classed as affordable in the area.

If you're considering buying a property in Imperial Wharf's locale in London, getting an Environmental Search Report, one of the main property conveyancing searches, is an important way to find out if there are environmental issues which might affect your enjoyment of the dwelling.

A recent such report, bought for a property in Colehill Lane, London SW6 5EF revealed the following:
  • A surface water flooding risk within 25 metres;
  • A risk of river flooding within 25 metres; and
  • Potentially contaminative activities within 500 metres of the property (and these were listed, including, for example, petrol stations, dry cleaners and laundrettes).
Flooding risks often translate into larger insurance premiums (as well as the risk of real upheaval from an actual flooding event); contaminative activities can have a variety of negative effects, including, for example, offensive smells.
The Local Authority Search, the most important of the conveyancing property searches, can flag up land charges which affect a property you're looking to buy.

A recent such search bought for a property in Seagrave Road, SW6 1ST revealed that the dwelling was subject to a smoke control order and was within an area that will be affected by HS2, something which might entail noise pollution and other disruption during its construction phase but which paradoxically might drive up property prices in the medium to longer term.
Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally equired to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in Inchbonnie Road, South Woodham Ferrers, CM3 5FG. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Imperial Wharf.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase.

The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property you are looking to buy in Imperial Wharf: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of the property which is completely independent of the mortgage lender.

This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost. Need a HomeBuyers Survey? Call us on 0207 112 5388.

Homebuyers surveys are not the same as Mortgage Valuations, see an example from SAM Conveyancing
