Investing in Newham property

Newham was put firmly on the London map with the 2012 Olympics, and the area has continued to grow ever since. In fact, according to ONS figures, the population of Newham has grown by more than 80,000 since 2005.

The borough is located north of the Thames, and has the Olympic Park and London Stadium in its midst. There has been substantial regeneration in the area which is now a thriving, cultural hub in the capital. With many new developments bringing in jobs and people, Newham could be a great place to invest.

According to Rightmove, Newham has an overall average property price of £435,666, which is more expensive than nearby Barking & Dagenham and Havering, but cheaper than Tower Hamlets. Most of last year’s property sales involved flats. Stratford is the most expensive area in the London Borough of Newham.

Our Professional Services

At Able Surveyors, our expert team delivers a wide range of building related services designed to assist you with the purchase and maintenance of your commercial or residential property in Newham. We can provide:


Is a RICS HomeBuyer Report right for my property purchase?

A RICS HomeBuyer Report is ideal if the house or flat appears to be in generally good condition but may not entirely meet current building regulations. This Level 2 survey can also be used to determine any structural problems such as subsidence or damp. For unusual properties, listed sites or buildings that have been significantly altered or need modernisation, a comprehensive RICS Building Survey is likely to be more suitable.

Is a property valuation the same as an estate agent’s appraisal?

There are important differences between the two approaches to valuing a property. An estate agent will use their local property experience to arrive at the likely market value when pricing your home for sale, with the intention of winning your business as a seller. A RICS approved valuer, on the other hand, will use their expertise to provide you with a formal building valuation that is technically accurate and factually supported.

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.

I felt good because of the impeccable services i received. For keeping me in loop all the way is very professional even when you couldn't reach the agent. The report was very detailed and the attention to details was very impressive. The Initial report i first received was very commendable. Great job and keep it up.
