What types of property are available in North-East London?

The biggest residential area of Waltham Forest is Walthamstow. Property here ranges from late Victorian and Edwardian detached, semi-detached and terraces, along with purpose-built flats known as “Warner” flats. These are terraced with two front doors and each flat has its own garden. Waltham Forest has, in common with the rest of London, seen an uptick in the number of new apartment blocks.

Redbridge has several excellent benefits, one being its proximity to Epping Forest. This borough has a large number of 1930-style bungalows on its property roster, some larger semi-detached homes from the same decade and several very leafy suburbs.

In neighbouring Havering, the biggest town is Romford with bungalows one of the most popular property types. Victorian terraces are naturally well represented in the Havering property roster, along with inter-war detached and semi-detached homes.

What are schools like in North-East London?

You can check the rating of your chosen school on the government's school comparison website.

Are there conservation areas in North-East London property buyers should be aware of?

The capital has a long and illustrious history, which means there are many areas that still have important architectural or historic significance. Conservation areas have been established to protect this heritage, and strict planning rules apply to all land and property within that area.

Waltham Forest has 14 conservation areas, including Chingford Green and Walthamstow Village.

In Havering, there are 11 conservation areas, including the Second World War site at RAF Hornchurch.

Redbridge has 16 conservation areas, which include the original Barnardo's village.

If you buy within a conservation area, your North-East London conveyancing solicitor will ask for a local authority search to identify any potential issues around planning.

Did you know?

The classic London Routemaster bus was born in Walthamstow. The London Motor Omnibus Company was founded in the town in 1905 and made the iconic red buses until 1979.

Havering is one of London's greenest and least built-up borough. Half of the borough is on green belt land, meaning it cannot be built on, and there are three country parks - Havering, Hornchurch and Bedfords.

Redbridge takes its name, unsurprisingly, from the red bridge that once crossed the River Roding.

No Completion No Fee is our promise that in the unfortunate event that your property transaction falls-through you will not be liable for any of the conveyancer’s fixed legal fees for the work completed.

To secure this benefit a fee, already included in your quote, is taken upon on deciding to go ahead with your transaction.

Should your transaction fall through, for whatever reason, we can hold this amount on account for your next transaction or provide a refund.

Your Fixed Legal Fee** quote from Homeward Legal ensures that you pay no more than we have quoted you for and is based on the information you’ve provided to us being true and accurate.

There are specific circumstances on a minority of transactions that may require additional charges that could not be foreseen at the outset.

A list of those charges and explanations can be found here with details of the potential cost. These will only be charged following discussion with your conveyancer with a clear explanation of what they are for.
