Top tips for a Bellingham Home Buyers Survey


Bellingham was relatively undeveloped until the railway arrived in 1892. There were very few houses originally but the London County Council built the Bellingham Estate, which was a cottage estate, between 1920 and 1936 – around 2,666 houses and flats were built. 

Most of the houses, however, were 2-storey, semi-detached or terrace, with gardens. More flats were built when Southend Lane was constructed between 1936 and 1939.

There are new developments of 1,2 and 3-bedroom apartments in nearby Catford Green and there have been shared ownership sales of some of the new properties being built in Prospect Quarter (the old Catford Stadium) are being sold as shared ownership.

Properties in Bellingham which are situated close to the Pool River in streets such as Meadowview Road and Worsley Bridge 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, Bellingham, including streets such as Malting Close and Manchaster Square, 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 5-10% (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.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Bellingham, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Drain Response Ltd., 213 Ardgowan Rd, London, SE6 1UZ.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are looking at buying in Bellingham and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate. Call 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Bellingham.
