What type of property survey should you have?

If you are taking out a mortgage the lender will insist upon carrying out a valuation inspection. Although you will bear the cost of this it is just a valuation for the lender's purposes and not a survey. The two most common types of property survey are an RICS Homebuyer Survey and Valuation, often referred to as a Homebuyer's Report and a Building Survey. The Homebuyer's Report will be suitable in most cases. The exceptions are properties that are more than 150 years old, that have been substantially altered or that have known structural problems. If any of these exceptions apply a Building Survey, previously known as a Full Structural survey, will be more appropriate.

Information on Beckton

Situated in the London Borough of Newham, Beckton lies just south of the A13 in Docklands. It is close to City Airport and the University of East London.

Beckton was traditionally a large industrial area but the regeneration of this part of London has meant a wave of new residential developments and the subsequent influx of residents to the area. Although some period housing remains, most buildings are far more modern and there are townhouses and apartments to choose from. There are some shopping facilities and a number of big name stores in larger shopping areas that cater to the immediate area. There is still a great deal of development taking place in the area but as yet there is no cohesive centre to Beckton.

Beckton Park station is in zone 3 and is on the DLR, which connects passengers to the Docklands and the City of London, as well as providing quick links to nearby City Airport.
