Top tips for a Bromley Home Buyers Survey


Bromley, like many suburbs of South London, saw rapid expansion when the railways arrived there in the mid-19th century: its housing is a mix of Victorian, Edwardian and more modern properties.

Sundridge Park and Bickley in particular have many large, detached Edwardian houses and Bickley also has a number of 1930s mock Tudor homes. The area is an excellent mix of London and country.

The area also has a number of modern flats which offer shared ownership, such as William House in Ringers Road, Hardwick House in Masons Hill and 100A Wessex Road.

Properties in Bromley built in close proximity to the Ravensbourne River and Ravens Bourne such as Glassmill Lane, Queen's Mead Road and Hillside Road, have been 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 stretching to the west of Bromley (including streets such as Farnaby Road and Madeira Avenue) is in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

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.
Properties built in some areas around Bromley are more prone to subsidence.


In a recent RICS HomeBuyer Report done on a property in Bromley Road, the surveyor noted that the property was built above a slowly permeable, seasonally wet, slightly acidic but base-rich loamy and clayey soilscape, which has impeded drainage properties, and therefore negative implications for the future likelihood of the occurrence of subsidence.

Kent.pngKent, 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.

A RICS Home Buyers Survey 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.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Bromley.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. If you're buying a property in Bromley with a mortgage, your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate.
