Top tips for a Blackheath Home Buyers Survey


Blackheath has a delightful ambience because while it is very near the centre of town, it has a village-type feel. Homes there are from many eras, from the Georgian to new builds and there are 200 acres of common land and excellent shops.

There are Georgian houses in Lee Road and large detached houses in Kidbrooke Grove built in the Edwardian period. The area north of the heath close Maze Hill and Westcombe Park stations has many roads of Victorian, Edwardian and later 1920s housing. Many larger properties have been converted into flats. The Cator Estate has flats dating from the late 1950s and 1960s.

The Ferrier Estate in Kidbrooke is in the process of being redeveloped – the new development is called Kidbrooke Village – and is set to have nearly 5,000 new homes, of which 1,500 are to be affordable and 700 to be sold under shared ownership.

Properties built in the vicinities of the Ravensbourne River and the Quaggy River in Blackheath, such as in Granville Park, 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, some parts of Blackheath, including streets such as Baizdon Road and Hurren Close, 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from railways in the Blackheath area centre around the railway which passes through Blackheath Station, affecting nearby streets such as Hurren Close and Bennett Park.

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 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, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Blackheath.

What’s the difference between a HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

When it comes to property surveys for home buyers there are two main choices.

The first is the RICS HomeBuyer Report; this survey is specifically designed for post-1950s flats/bungalows/maisonettes or houses of standard construction. The report uses a 'traffic light' format to indicate the opinion of the surveyor on the various aspects of the building under consideration. The HomeBuyer Report includes a current market valuation as standard which can be used to compare with your property's agreed asking price.

The second option is the RICS Building Survey; this survey is reserved for older and larger properties that may have had the original fabric of the property altered or have unique features (i.e. a thatched roof). It is the most detailed visual inspection that can be carried out.

While it doesn’t include the property valuation that comes as standard with a HomeBuyer Report, many surveyors will often include in it an estimate of the cost of works for maintenance or upgrades to help with repairs or renovation to the property.
