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 Forest Gate

Situated in the London Borough of Newham, Forest Gate is a residential area that borders Manor Park and lies just to the south of Wanstead Flats.

Forest Gate enjoys some of the amenities of nearby Upton Park, with Green Street just nudging into its territory. There is a good selection of period property, ranging from large houses to conversion flats in Victorian buildings. However, there is a also a great deal of more modern housing. This is standard across much of the East End as bomb damage was extensive here during the Second World War and housing had to rebuilt quickly. Wanstead Flats Park is a big selling point for this area. It is part of Epping Forest and is a massive area of open grassland that provides a huge amount of recreational space for residents.

Trains from Forest Gate mainline station will take you into London Liverpool Street in under 15 minutes. There is no underground station here but Wanstead Park is fairly close and this is on the Central line.
