Our team of surveyors are passionate about inspecting properties in Poplar whether it be as part of a pre-purchase survey, to establish a property’s value or to prepare a schedule of condition prior to works commencing next door.
If you are planning a building project in Poplar you’ve probably started thinking about party wall procedures. The first step is to establish whether the works fall within the scope of the Act – if you’d like us to do that for you, free of charge, just send us copies of the drawings and we’ll normally come back to you within 24 hours. If you’re on the other side of the wall, we can also assist if you’ve decided that you need to appoint a surveyor or just need some initial advice without obligation.
Our team of surveyors have assisted numerous clients over the years with the purchase of their Poplar property both by providing valuation advice and pre-purchase surveys. Residents regularly come back to us when it’s time to refurbish or extend their property so that we can advise on neighbourly matters or just manage the whole project.
This is where we’ll be providing details of some of the Poplar based projects we’ve worked on recently, the challenges that we’ve faced and the feedback we’ve received from our clients so please check back over the next few weeks to read more.
In the meantime, we’d recommend that you check out the large collection of posts that have been added to our blog since 2009 including a few detailed case studies.

Poplar forms part of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets in East London and is made up of a mix of 18th/19th century terraced houses and post war housing estates, all in the shadow of the Docklands.
One of the most notable landmarks in the area is the Poplar Baths on East India Dock Road. Re-built in 1933 to a design by Harley Heckford, the larger pool was converted to a 1400 seat theatre to ensure its popularity over the winter months. It eventually closed in 1988 and lay derelict between 1994 and 2001 when pressure from local residents to save the pool prevented its demolition and helped to get it listed. Some 15 years later it reopened to the public.
The BBC1 show Call the Midwife, based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, is set in Poplar in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The Sisters of Saint John the Divine upon which the show is based, actually resided at the St Frideswides Mission House which still stands on Lodore Street. The original ‘Nonnatus House’ is now residential accommodation.
Poplar has its own DLR station, one stop removed from Canary Wharf on the Elizabeth Line from where you can travel to Heathrow in around 40 minutes.
