Top tips for a Chelsfield Home Buyers Survey


Chelsfield has a great variety of properties with some survivals from considerably older times, however the vast majority of properties were built from the late 19th century onwards, such as the Edwardian semi-detached property in Beech Road.

There are standard 1920s/1930s semi-detached properties in Spring Gardens and Warren Drive and you can find 3 bedroom detached houses from the 1930s in Rock Hill, large modern detached properties in Chelsfield Hill, Homestead Road and Worlds End Lane and there are a large number of bungalows, such as the large ones in Daltons Road.

When you get a Local Authority Conveyancing Search you can find out about planned road, rail and traffic schemes which might affect the property in question. A recent such search taken out for a property in Elmcroft Road, Orpington BR6 0HY revealed that the property was in an area that might be affected by the proposed construction of an extension of the Bakerloo Line (London Underground/tube).
You'd only normally get a Ground Stability Report, a particular kind of conveyancing property search, if your lender insists on it or a local authority search flags up the need for it, regarding a particular property you're looking to buy.

A recent such search, taken out for a property in Station Road, Orpington BR6 0SA, revealed that the property was built within 250 metres of recorded mining activity and had a highly likely chance of potential for ground instability related to non-coal mining within the same radius. The search additionally revealed natural and man-made cavities and mineral extraction/quarrying within the same radius and the existence of bore holes.

The evidence of the existence of such attributes can have implications; a lender might choose not to lend or might make any lending conditional on further checks and/or obtaining specific insurance. Additionally, depending on the severity of the situation, they might influence you as a buyer to pull out of the purchase.
.
An Environmental Search report can flag up potential flooding issues affecting the land a property you're looking to buy is located on. A recent such report, taken out for a property in Bruce Grove, Orpington BR6 0HF, revealed that there was potential for surface water flooding within 25 metres of the property, a risk of flooding from rivers and sea within 250 metres and a risk of groundwater flooding within 25 metres.

These findings are important, not least to brief you about flooding potential which might affect your enjoyment of the property in the future, but also is likely to make insurance either more expensive or even unable to obtain.

KentKent, 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.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Chelsfield.

When should you book in your property defect survey?

It is recommended that you book in your property survey, be it a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, around the same time you book in your mortgage valuation.

Booking the inspection to coincide with a few days after you get the decision on your mortgage (the offer) keeps you on track with the process.

Additionally it allows you time to cancel your survey in the unfortunate event of the lender declining your mortgage.

In the event that you are a cash purchaser, it is recommended to have your survey carried out as soon as you can within the process as this will be a deciding factor as to whether you proceed with buying the property or not.
