11 Vital Aspects to Assess When Viewing a House: Your Comprehensive Guide


Searching for a new home can be both exciting and overwhelming. To ensure your dream home doesn’t turn into a nightmare, a meticulous house viewing is essential. As experienced estate agents in Canning Town, we understand the importance of a thorough inspection. Here’s a detailed checklist of 11 key factors to consider when viewing a house:

1. Is It Damp?

Dampness can lead to significant issues. Look for watermarks, musty smells, or peeling paint, especially in basements and bathrooms.

2. Is It Structurally Sound?

Inspect walls, ceilings, and floors for cracks. Check door frames and window sills for any unusual gaps, as these could indicate structural problems.

3. How’s the Roof?

Examine the roof for missing or damaged tiles, signs of leaks, or sagging. Roof repairs can be costly, so ensure it’s in good condition.

4. Plumbing

Turn on taps and flush toilets. Look for leaks, low water pressure, or rusty water, which could signify plumbing issues.

5. Electrics

Test light switches and outlets. Outdated or faulty wiring can pose safety hazards. Ensure all switches and outlets are functioning properly.

6. Windows

Check for drafts, condensation between panes, or difficult operation. Well-sealed windows are crucial for energy efficiency and comfort.

7. Floors

Walk around to detect squeaky or uneven floors. These issues may indicate structural problems or the need for floor repairs.

8. Location

Consider the neighborhood vibe, proximity to schools, public transportation, and local amenities. Evaluate noise levels and safety.

9. Storage

Evaluate the available storage space, including closets and cabinets. Sufficient storage is vital for a clutter-free home.

10. Mobile Service

Check mobile phone signal strength throughout the house. Inadequate reception can be frustrating in daily life.

11. Future Potential

Consider the potential for expansion or renovations. Consult with our expert estate agents in Canning Town about the property’s future possibilities.

From just a walk in to prompt service delivery. Adil took time to explain about property market and was very professional in every aspect of negotiation and final house letting process. So far property management has been satisfactory.

I chose REMAX and Adil specifically to manage my property in the Canning Town area because I could tell the enthusiasm and customer service levels were extremely high. I have not been disappointed given the current market and global situation over the past year and more I could not have asked for a more attentive agent then Adil and the wider REMAX team

I approached REMAX after being dissatisfied with another agent in the area, who was very poorly responsive, negligent with our property, & unable to rent it out for 3 months. From the first interaction, Adil was highly responsive, provided advice on what was required to bring the property back up to standard, and swiftly obtained quotes for all work that needed to be carried out. REMAX oversaw completion of the extensive work & secured tenants in approximately 4 weeks. I initially contacted REMAX, amongst other agents, due to their high Google ratings. Based on my own experience, I rate the level of customer service & professionalism 5 star. Thank you Adil & Team.

I have just secured a new apartment using the REMAX Canning Town Branch, and during the whole process, Mr Masood Qaiser was very helpful. I contacted him through Facebook regarding the available property. He was very professional, good communicator. Patient and reliable. Explained all the processes and followed up with emails and calls, which helped put my mind at ease and helped me throughout the whole process, making the process smooth and easy. Even he helped me with switching the bills. So I very much recommend this agency. I had a positive experience with them.

I saw so many properties to rent in Facebook . You have so many advertises and when I ask Julian if they are still available He doesn't reply to me. Even not only him ..There is another guy I can't remember his name and he doesn't answered on my messages as well. This is the reason to give you only one star

I've used Remax Canning Town Branch for Letting my apartment in Rathborne Market. Mr Rizwan is reliable and goes the extra mile to help and secure the professional tenants as I wanted. On top of his knowledge and experience, Rizwan is kind and personable, a pleasure to work with him, and I recommend REMAX wholeheartedly.
