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.

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?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects.

Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that you'd like to buy in Brixton to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Brixton that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property.

The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Buy your HomeBuyers Survey - call 0207 112 5388.
