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.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Battersea, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure is non-intrusive.

Can you attend the Survey with the surveyor?

Most surveyors do not allow the client on site whilst carrying out their inspection. They have a long list of defects that they need to check for and they cannot be distracted from the job in hand as they can be held to account for any missed defects.

The surveyors' professional indemnity insurance does not cover for bringing any third party on site with them while they are completing their inspection, therefore, in the event of any damage being sited by a vendor while the survey is taking place, the surveyor would be liable and uninsured.

On the day of the survey if you have any concerns you can make the surveyor aware of this so they can pay special attention to these areas during their inspection.
