Steve Hobbs, one of our Chartered Surveyors, recently completed a Level 2 Survey for a client who was purchasing a converted flat set within a terraced period building located in the triangle bordered by Whitechapel Road and Commercial Road. The survey uncovered a variety of maintenance and repair issues, including evidence of subsidence.
The client was pleased with the process and with the quality of the survey report; Very happy with the Building Survey carried out by Peter Barry. The quality of the survey met all expectations and I feel the administrative aspects of arranging this were also tackled very well. Following the issuing of the report, I found the surveyor to be very accommodating in meeting my requests to discuss directly, certain parts of the report that I felt required clarification. I would certainly recommend Peter Barry Surveyors in the future.

Whitechapel is in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and is located between Liverpool Street and Stepney Green.
Whitechapel is a frenetic inner city area that has a wide cultural mix, with a significant Bangladeshi community. In recent years, Whitechapel has become a hub for artists, students and creatives as housing was affordable and abundant. As such, there are a number of art galleries, cafes and restaurants, as well as ethnic markets and food stores. Its proximity to the City will undoubtedly earmark it as a future growth area and housing prices will be set to increase.
