Top tips for a Bexley Home Buyers Survey


Housing development in Bexley mainly accompanied London's suburban expansion in the early decades of the 20th century, so you see many detached and semi-detached houses dating from the 1930s, for example. Albany Park Estate and Royal Park Estate are typical of these and were originally designed for working class families moving to Bexley from Inner London.

William Morris' Red House in the locale is a fine example of Arts & Crafts architecture (Morris was the founder of the movement); it was built in 1860. There are other surviving properties from earlier periods, such as Stylemans Almshouse, 12 almshouses originally built in 1755.

You can find very modern developments, particularly purpose-built flats, in Hawthorn Road and Albion Road and there are many homes being sold as shared ownership throughout the area.

Properties built in the vicinity of the River Shuttle in Bexley, such as in Haddon Grove, 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 Bexley, including streets such as Alers Road and Olron Crescent, 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.
Some properties in Bexley may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Wren Road revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

KentKent, romantically described as 'the garden of England', is a coastal county in the England's south eastern corner. Because it borders Greater London, it is classed as one of the home counties. It contains the Weald and the North Downs. Kent's county town is Maidstone. Other large cities include Gillingham, Chatham, Ashford, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Margate, Dartford and Gravesend. 

Kent has many port towns including Dover, Folkestone and Margate. Adjacent counties include East Sussex, Surrey, Essex (across the River Thames) and, as stated earlier, Greater London. Curiously, Kent used to contain an enclave north of the River Thames until 1965 which equates now to the E16 postcode area and which has now been reclassified as part of the London Borough of Newham. JMW Turner, the great impressionist painter, spent part of his childhood in Margate and regularly returned there in later life. The coastline of East Kent is regarded as the inspiration for many of his works, particularly his fantastic seascapes.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Bexley, incredibly important.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Bexley has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Why can’t I have a HomeBuyer Report on a thatched cottage?

Any property older than 70years/that has had the original fabric of the structure altered/or has a unique feature like a thatched roof is best catered for by a building survey.

The HomeBuyer Report comes in a standard format and anything that falls outside of that, such as an older property where the original build materials have decayed, won’t be adequately addressed and will require the bespoke nature of reporting that comes with a Building Survey.
