Top tips for a Chigwell Home Buyers Survey


Chigwell is a small town in the Epping Forest area of Essex.

It has Georgian houses in the old village in the vicinity of St Mary's Church as well as weatherboard cottages and Ye Olde King's Head inn and towards Grange Hill and Hainault, there are semi-detached houses from the 1930s. There is a 1960s development called The Bowls which offers spacious flats on Manor Road.

Mostly Chigwell has large, detached family houses which date at most back to 1903 when the Central Line arrived and many of the older properties have been knocked down and replaced by newer and even larger mansions in roads such as Forest Lane, Hainault Road and Stradbroke Drive.

Areas around the River Roding in Chigwell are subject to flood alerts and warnings from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Chigwell.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Dacre Gardens, Chigwell, IG7 5HG, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Chigwell, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Loughton Drains, 3 Rochford Avenue, Loughton, IG10 2BS.

EssexEssex is not only a coastal county (the North Sea is to its east) but a home county because it touches Greater London on its eastern borders. Its settlements vary from Colchester, which is very historical and used to be the capital of England as Camulodunum, to Southend, a seaside resort, to Basildon, which is a comparatively modern urban development. The western side of Essex hosts many London workers and there are fast rail links to, for example, Shenfield from London Liverpool Street which aid many city workers.

Essex's county town is Chelmsford (and is the county's only city), where Essex County Cricket Club are based. Essex hosts Stansted Airport and attractions such as the Lakeside Shopping Centre, near Thurrock and Epping Forest, a popular forest for camping and other activities. A large proportion of Essex's boundaries are water (the River Thames and the North Sea), the remainder includes Greater London, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. Kent is across the River Thames to the south.

Why should I have a RICS Survey?

The survey should assist the buyer by flagging any concerns identified with the property which may allow them to make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to proceed with their purchase.

The report will detail any repairs or replacements identified and will also advise where further specialist advice may be necessary.

The property is inspected both internally and externally however the surveyor is only able to inspect areas where access has been provided and visibility has not been impeded.

If a buyer has any specific concerns they have identified, these should be flagged with the surveyor prior to inspection so that they can confirm that these can form part of the report and comment on them accordingly.
