Top tips for a Beckenham Home Buyers Survey


Beckenham, like many London suburbs, saw a rapid increase in housing development with the arrival of the railway in the latter 19th century.

There are many Victorian properties in the area and you can find large Victorian houses in the roads around Kent House and Clock House stations, for example in Kent House Road and Barnmead Road. There are also larger Edwardian and 1930s houses, such as in Park Langley, and many semi-detached houses built from the 1930s onwards.

There are also modern developments, many offering shared ownership, such as in Wessex Court and County House in Beckenham Road.

Properties built in the vicinities of the Chaffinch Brook and The Beck in Beckenham, such as in Forster Road, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, a large area of Beckenham, including streets such as Albemarle Road and Bevington Road, is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1 – 3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Getting a RICS home buyers survey for a property you're looking to buy in Beckenham can give you information about whether there are suspicions of asbestos present in any part of it which may need to be removed.

A recent HomeBuyers Report carried out on a property in Bromley Road stated the following about the garage, for example:

"The garage sits between a concrete floor and a corrugated cement board-covered roof. The roof is in a satisfactory condition and appears to be watertight. However, the cement board is likely to contain asbestos, and we would therefore recommend that any maintenance, repair or removal or the roof is only undertaken by a contractor who is experienced in handling asbestos."

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Beckenham, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, for your peace of mind.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

How long does your survey take?

We book the earliest possible slot for your RICS surveyor to carry out their inspection for your RICS home buyers survey. Then, on the day, they visit the property and inspect all accessible areas, concentrating on signs and suspicions of defects and issues.

The actual time your surveyor takes over the inspection varies with each property – you can imagine that one for a small flat for a HomeBuyers Report will normally take less than one for a large mansion for a Building Survey. It is likely to be anything between 1 ½ hours to 3 hours.

SAM Conveyancing's RICS surveyors call you on the day of the inspection after carrying it out to go over any major concerns and findings and then they complete the report and return it to you within 5 working days.
