Top tips for a Addiscombe Home Buyers Survey


Addiscombe is an area to the northeast of Croydon in South London. It developed alongside the arrival of the railway in the 1830s.

There are a great variety of properties in the area, with Edwardian terrace houses, 1920s and 1930s semi-detached homes and 1970s flats all appearing in Havelock Road and Clyde Road for example.

Since early 2006 several parts of Addiscombe have been in the process of extensive regeneration, notably the addition of housing to the site of the former Black Horse Pub and the demolition of former Church Halls.

New builds in the area include Penhurst Square in Grant Road, which offers a mix of 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments, and 4-bedroom houses, some of which are available under the Help to Buy scheme.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

All of Addiscombe's properties, for example in roads such as Clyde Road and Havelock Road, are built in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Addiscombe .

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Masons Avenue, the report noted that there was a high potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Properties in some areas of Addiscombe are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Masons Avenue, noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Can I be present during my Building Survey?

As standard, surveyors do not allow clients on site with them for several reasons. Most importantly, surveyors have a third party liability insurance that covers them whilst they are on the property in the unlikely event of any damages, this does not extend to the client and as such the surveyor would be liable in the event of any damages to the property.

The other reason is that the surveyor is there to do a job and has a long list of defects to look out for which requires their full attention. The presence of the client will understandably cause distractions and may cause the surveyor to miss something, not only could this lead the client to seeking restitution, it would ultimately affect the quality of the survey the client had paid for.
