Top tips for a Charlton Home Buyers Survey


Charlton is a district of southeast London in Greenwich Borough.

The architecture of Charlton is diverse; it evolved from a Thames-side village and rapidly developed in the 19th and 20th centuries into the London suburb that it is today. The Bugle Horn pub was originally a late 17th century coaching inn. The district's centre remains Charlton House, its former manor house, which wsa completed in 1612 and is a fine Jacobean mansion.

In Charlton Road a weather boarded seventeenth century cottage (Poplar Cottage) remains as a reminder of Charlton's rural past. Although there was Victorian suburban development on the slopes from Charlton Road to the Woolwich Road, 

Charlton retained the appearance of a quiet Kentish village until the 1930s when large housing developments, both private and municipal like the Guild Estate, Springfield, and Cherry Orchard, joined the small, attractive Kentish village to its larger neighbours, Blackheath and Woolwich.

New build developments include Victorian Way, which comprises 121 apartments, 3 duplex apartments and 21 townhouses.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

All properties in Charlton are built in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time and those built closer to the River Thames, typically north of Charlton and Westcombe Park Railway Stations, in streets such as Westmoor Street and Greenroof Way, are in an area where flood warnings are issued 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 areas of Charlton, including streets such as Floyd Road and Charlton Church Lane, 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.
When a surveyor is completing either a RICS building survey or a homebuyer report they will switch the lights on and off. If they feel like there is a problem that needs to be rectified they will advise you to consult an electrician.

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.

A Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People, particularly first time buyers, 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 spend money on expensive repair costs which should have been divided up with the seller with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are trying to buy in Charlton 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, or even deciding not to go ahead with buying a property. Call 0207 112 5388 and speak to our experts to book your HomeBuyers Survey.
