Top tips for a Brixton Home Buyers Survey


Brixton's housing can broadly be divided into housing estates, where the majority of the area's population lives, and some grand Victorian housing.

The estates are mainly of the brutalist (and often high-rise) type of the 60s and 70s, such as Angell Town and Loughborough (although Angell Town was originally built in the early 19th century), although there is a fair amount of low-rise 1940s buildings as well.

The Victorian buildings tend to be in and around Brixton Road. Brixton's windmill on Brixton Hill was built in 1816. St Matthew's Church, which is arguably in the centre of Brixton and is a clear landmark, was finished in 1822. The building has massive Greek Doric entrance portico at the west end, fronting onto Brixton Hill.

Noise pollution from road and rail in Brixton is at its highest in the vicinity of the Brixton Road and Nursery Road where the railway line crosses Brixton Road.
Chimney stacks are normally connected to a fireplace found in the living room.

You should instruct your building surveyor to confirm if the fireplace is still working, or to confirm its actual location.
Parapet walls are normally inspected from the roof and these would show London Stock, Flemish bond brickwork, denoting that they are constructed of solid brickwork.

You building surveyor should check to ensure the brickwork to the parapets is sufficiently pointed.

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.

A RICS Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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 worried about any defects that you think your property in Brixton 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.

Is asbestos testing included in my survey? Is the removal cost also quoted?

No, what the surveyor will do is let you know within the report that there are signs of asbestos based on their visual inspection and of the property's general style and age. If there are suspicions of asbestos you would be advised to get an asbestos specialist to test the grade of the asbestos within the property.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Brixton and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards. All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory. At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
