Top tips for a Battersea Home Buyers Survey


Battersea has a large area of mid-20th century public housing estates, almost all located north of the main railway lines and spanning from Fairfield in the west to Queenstown in the east. St John’s Hill and Lavender Hill Roads form a dividing line between these social housing estates of North Battersea and the more affluent and more obviously Victorian-era streets of South Battersea.

Some of the estates in North Battersea were built in the brutalist concrete style of the 60s and 70s. There are newer developments springing up, some of which fall under the Help to Buy and shared ownership schemes.

Nearly all of Battersea, including streets such as Henning Street and Inworth Street, is in an area where flood warnings are issued from time to time and the area extends further to the east, to Wandsworth and to the west, to Vauxhall.

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).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Battersea area accompany its main thoroughfares, including East Hill, Sandown Way, Fairfield Street and Trinity Road in particular. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways in the area accompany the main lines going into and way from Clapham Junction railway station, affecting streets close by including Shrubland Road and Chivalry Road.
Battersea has a number of purpose built flats that are concrete framed construction with external cladding beneath a flat roof covering. Internally, the floors are of concrete construction. Internal walls are of stud partitions. The windows are of modern double glazed units.

In a recent survey of Olney House, 1 Wynter Street, Battersea, SW11 2QH, the property comprised of a 1st floor purpose-built flat which forms part of five storey block, built in the 2013. The building is located within an established residential area close to usual local amenities.

LondonGreater 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.

My estate agent told me I don’t need a survey

Fortunately we only come across this on occasion. As we know, English Law puts the emphasis on the buyer in a conveyancing transaction to complete all reasonable checks on the property prior to exchange.

This is explained by the legal term caveat emptor  which is the principle that the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made.

Although the estate agent’s intentions may be pure in advising against a survey, in the event of a buyer moving into a property and finding that there are defects that would have been identified in the simplest of RICS surveyor checks, there is no recourse to the estate agent after the fact.

If the surveyor does not identify any significant defects, then the buyer can complete the purchase with peace of mind, however if defects are identified then an informed decision can be made on whether to proceed with the purchase prior to being contractually tied in.

A survey does also on occasion provide an opportunity to renegotiate on price based on newly identified problems not spotted on first inspection.

An estate agent is paid on completion as is the vendor therefore their drivers for additional property checks are very different to those of the buyers’.
