Romford was once a self-contained market town, but now it is an integral part of East London. Buildings from its previous era remain however, and two old public houses in the market place are listed buildings. There are also many churches to explore in Romford, the most famous of which being St Edward the Confessor Church and although it was restored around 1850, a religious building has stood on the site since the 14th century. Romford is also one of the major metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan signifying it will undergo a string of redevelopment in the years to come. Romford combines these proposed redevelopments with significantly lower average house prices, compared to London as a whole, making it a particularly desirable place to live. Our users agree and in 2016, reallymoving.com and our RICS regulated Chartered Surveyors have helped over 750 people relocate to this part of the capital.
Like many parts of London, Romford’s soil is rich in clay. When the soil dries out it decreases in volume and this can adversely affect property foundations dug into the clay soil. Problems with a property’s foundations can manifest in a number of ways, from small cracks to complete structural failure. It is also incredibly expensive to repair and this is one reason that reallymoving.com highly recommends the services of our professional Chartered Surveyors as they will be able to provide you with a Homebuyer Report which will detail all damages to your prospective property.
