Top tips for a Bermondsey Home Buyers Survey


Bermondsey is a district of southeast London in Southwark Borough and is within walking distance of the City of London. Its church of St Mary Magdalen in Bermondsey Street was completed in 1690. It has many buildings which were originally used in industry in the 19th century, when the area was one of the centres of the leather trade, although the area was heavily bombed in the 2nd world war blitz.

There are low-rise council blocks built from the 1930s in Cadbury Way and plenty of conversions of warehouses, such as The Jam Factory, Tanners Yard and The Glass House. You can find 2 and 3-bedroom flat-fronted Victorian cottages in Thorburn Square conservation area, which lies between Lynton Road and Southwark Bridge Road.

Some of the most upmarket properties are in the Shad Thames area, which consists mainly of purpose-built low to medium-rise apartment blocks alongside the south bank of the River Thames, such as in Gainsford Street and Queen Elizabeth Street.

New build developments include One Tower Bridge, which offers 367 1, 2 and 3-bedroom flats in 7 buildings, including one tower block and Snowsfield Yard in Melior Street, which offers 37 1, 2, and 3-bedroom flats and penthouses, 9 priced as affordable.

Survey Tip 1

Virtually all of the properties in Bermondsey are located in an area where flood warnings and 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Bermondsey, including streets such as Mandela Way and Guinness Square, are 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.
A recent Environmental Search for a property on the road of St. James's Road, London, SE1 5JX, stated that it was within 50m of an area with a potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. 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. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

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.

The procedure is non-intrusive.

What happens if the conveyancing falls through before the survey takes place will I get a full refund?

If you need to cancel the survey for any reason at all you need to ensure that you have given the surveyor 48 hours’ notice before the survey takes place. If the surveyor has 48 or more hours’ notice then you will be provided with a full refund.

If however you only give the surveyor 24 hours’ notice then there will be a penalty of £50 due to the fact that the surveyor will not be able to fill that slot in time.

If you cancel on the same day as the Survey Date, or any time after the surveyor has attended the property then no refund is due however the report will be delivered in accordance with the terms agreed with the surveyor.
