About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Canary Wharf

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Canary Wharf and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Canary Wharf property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Canary Wharf property's condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

What should we be aware of if buying a home proximate to a landfill site

Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Canary Wharf will flag up structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Tower Hamlets Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Canary Wharf, and will the property surveyor look for any flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

The lives of many home owners in Canary Wharf and across the UK have been impacted by floods, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The survey report may also, where appropriate, outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

No recent Canary Wharf flood alerts have been given (source: Environment Agency).
