Top tips for a Enfield Home Buyers Survey


Enfield's St Andrew's Church dates from the 14th century and has some excellent Georgian houses, with even older houses in the country lanes of the Clay Hill area. Victorian flat-fronted cottages can be found in Gentleman's Row and River View overlooking or backing onto the New River.

Bush Hill Park has detached and semi-detached houses from the Edwardian period and the 1920s and elsewhere there are any number of Victorian, Edwardian and 1920s and 1930s semi-detached and terrace housing. Browning Road and the streets around it have many Victorian terrace properties.

There are a number of new developments including Enfield Central, which when completed is set to offer studio flats as well as 1 and 2 bedroom flats and 2-bedroom duplexes. The properties will be made from newly built blocks and office-to-residential conversion.

Housing built near to Salmon's Brook in Enfield, such as in The Chase or Windmill Gardens, is subject to flood warnings and alerts 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).
Enfield – ground stab
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Kynaston Road, Enfield, EN2 0DB noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

This finding did not necessarily mean that there was a cause for concern in terms of the property's stability: active subsidence depends on local conditions such as the proximity of trees. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Raised levels of noise pollution from road traffic in Enfield are at their highest around the ring of roads of London Road, Southbury Road and Genotin Road, affecting streets nearby such as Tiptree Drive and Essex Road.

Raised levels of noise pollution from railways centre around Enfield Station, which is a terminus, and the railway going southwards, and affect nearby streets such as Beverley Close and Waddington Close.

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?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Enfield, incredibly important.

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.

If you're buying a home in Enfield which shows the signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. 

The costs for making good or repairing some of these defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If identified within a survey you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Any number of people have been understandably confused between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Enfield you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects the property may have.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any defects which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.

This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend.

You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.


Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is squarely for your benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0207 112 5388 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
