Investing in Property in East Ham

East Ham is an up and coming area, with some of the cheapest house prices in London’s Zone 3. A proud East End neighbourhood situated between Stratford and Barking, the area has some of the most affordable Victorian and Edwardian terraces in London. “East Ham is vibrant, multicultural, with good schools and patches of green space,” says one local estate agent.

Regeneration is in full swing, with the nearest large development of new homes in Upton Gardens – the redevelopment of West Ham United’s former football grounds – promising 842 flats, and Beckton Parkside delivering 391 new flats from 2020.

East Ham property prices were up by 9% on 2016, and the current overall average price stands at £349,838, according to Rightmove.

FAQs

When do you need a damp report?

Damp is a common issue found in buildings and should never be ignored. The cause is usually external, coming from landscaping or trees nearby, obstructed ventilation in windows, doors or walls, or roof defects. Left untreated, damp can cause serious damage to wall plaster and structural timber. At Able Surveyors, we can carry out an in-depth damp survey to establish the cause and advise on recommended actions.

Can the mortgage valuation take the place of a property survey?

If you are buying a residential property, it is highly recommended that you take out an independent RICS survey to glean salient information about the condition and state of repair of the building. A mortgage valuation will not give you those details, being commissioned by the lender with the sole purpose of reassuring them that the mortgage you’ve applied for is worth the risk. The valuer is not obliged to feed back any information about structural or legal issues, so it is buyer beware.

I can't say enough good things about Able - not just on the survey quality, but also on the excellent communication. They knew I was in a hurry, and they made sure they gave me the earliest possible slot (about a week after paying). On the day, the surveyor kindly called me and spent half an hour talking through what he found, to put my mind at ease. The next day, I got a summary of the survey. And a couple of days later, the full survey report. It was incredibly detailed, and answered all my questions. It also listed the costs of each repair. A few weeks later, and after the searches came back, I emailed Able with a list of questions. A couple of hours later, the surveyor personally called me and spent an hour going through each point step by step. At no point did I feel rushed, and he spent time reassuring me about each item I was worried about. All in all, dealing with Able was the best experience I have had in the home-buying process, and I would be delighted to use them again if I ever buy another place.

Jack did a great job for us and was available for any follow-up questions in a timely manner. We got a thorough and professional report at a much more reasonable cost than other firms. Thank you!

One of the best people you want to use when considering buying a property. Communication was second to none and the report provided was detailed and gave me the assurance I was looking for. Very reasonable price for a first time buyer.

I am happy with service they provided. I was in dark regarding a house that I am going to buy but they stepped in and shed some lights and gave me some insights about the condition of the property. They are resposive nd helpful. I am happy with their service and also I have to mention that their price was reasonable.

My second time using their services, this time with surveyor Jack. As always: professional report, prompt response with follow up call. Honest (refunded unnecessary part of the survey). Got returning customer discount. Absolutely nothing to complain. They are ABLE, as the name says.
