Top tips for a Whitechapel Home Buyers Survey


Whitechapel is a district of East London in Tower Hamlets Borough and is close to St Katharine Docks. It contains the Saint Botolph Without Aldgate church; it was most recently completed in 1744 but there has been a church on the site for more than 1,000 years. Its Crossrail station is set to open in 2018.

A small number of period houses are in the area behind the Royal London Hospital. Elsewhere, there is a mix of period properties and conversion flats, such as in Philpot Street, often above commercial premises, converted warehouses, modern flats and right-to-buy former council flats.

New build developments include Goodman's Fields, a development of 1,053 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom flats and penthouses arranged in a medium-rise block and three tower blocks of between 17 and 22 storeys. Some 35 per cent are priced as affordable.

Aldgate Place is another new development, of 463 studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom flats arranged over six blocks ranging in height from six to 25 storeys. Both developments can be found in the area around Aldgate East tube station.

When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or homebuyer report in the Whitechapel area, they will switch the lights on and off but not test the whole electrical system. If they suspect that there is an electrical problem, they will recommend that you consult a local electrical contractor.

A local electrician in the Whitechapel area is Harrison How Ltd, 29 Salisbury House, London Wall, London EC2M 5QQ.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Whitechapel area mainly centre around the main road A11/Whitechapel Road, affecting some roads nearby such as Fulbourne Street and Cavell Street.

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 Whitechapel.

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 Building 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: 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 your property in Whitechapel 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.
