Purchase a family home in East London with your eyes open

As an area that’s seen large-scale property developments over recent years, East London appeals to those who want a new home that should be in perfect condition. However, the average new build contains between 50 and 150 defects, which can cost thousands of pounds to put right. Fortunately, our RICS chartered surveyors can highlight issues by performing a comprehensive building survey.

At Harding Charted Surveyors, we’ve been providing expert and impartial property advice to East London residents for decades, and our services extend far beyond property valuations and surveys. If you need help with anything property-related, we welcome you to contact us to discuss your requirements directly with a RICS chartered surveyor.

How we can help East London residents

Rather than purchase a new build that could be hiding an abundance of costly problems, you could let our qualified RICS surveyors prepare a Snagging List for your developer, ensuring all issues are resolved prior to your arrival. However, we can do much more than prepare detailed Snagging Lists.

Building surveys

  • RICS HomeBuyer Report
    Ensure your new home is suitable for your family by hiring our chartered surveyors to produce a RICS HomeBuyer Report, which highlights urgent defects.
  • Snagging Lists
    Make sure your housing developer or builder meets their repair obligations before moving into your new-build home.
  • Full Building Survey
    Gain an insight into your potential property’s overall condition with a Full Building Survey, which details issues, provides an estimate for required repairs and features a market valuation.


We provide an extensive selection of accurate and timely valuations, including:

  • Shared Ownership Staircasing/Equity Valuations
  • Market Valuations
  • Probate and Inheritance Tax Valuations
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • Right to Buy Valuations
