Top tips for a Poplar Home Buyers Survey


Poplar is an area of East London known not least because ex-Prime Minister Clem Atlee was its mayor.

It was heavily bombed during the war and many surviving period properties were wiped out, although there are still small enclaves of Victorian terrace houses, such as can be found around All Saints and St Matthias Churches.

Woodstock Terrace has excellent early Victorian three- and four-storey flat-fronted houses off Poplar High Street.

The Lansbury Estate was built in 1951 and Chrisp Street Market came from this time, which remains one of London's best street markets. Balfron Tower, a brutalist high-rise block built in 1967, is being redeveloped into luxury flats.

New build developments include New Providence Wharf on the Thames opposite the O2 arena, and London City Island, on a bend in the River Lea as well as Aberfeldy Village, an ongoing rebuilding of the Aberfeldy Estate in East India Dock Road, which is set to provide a further 1,000 homes.

Many of Poplar's properties are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time, such as in Brown Street and Lodore Street.

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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Poplar, including streets such as Shirbutt Street and Dingle Gardens, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Wind energy is one of several alternative energy sources; however, location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search stated that a property located on Bartlett Close, London, E14 6LH, is within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.

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 non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Poplar, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, for your peace of mind.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property.

Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp
and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Poplar which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey.

The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Do your surveyors operate with time limits?

Unfortunately some surveyors in the industry do put time limits on how long they will inspect the property regardless of whether they properly finish the inspection or not.

This isn’t a challenge we encounter as our surveyors operate by staying on site as long as the inspection requires before leaving or if it really cannot be completed in one day, revisiting the next to ensure a full inspection is completed prior to submitting a report to a client.
