Top tips for a Chislehurst Home Buyers Survey


Chislehurst is an affluent suburban district of southeast London in Bromley Borough. One key point of attraction of the area is that its commons are protected by an Act of Parliament.

The area has much choice in terms of its housing; anything from modern flats to period conversions; from two-bedroom cottages to Victorian and Edwardian terrace houses, plus large detached mansions.

Wilderness Road has large detached properties from the 1920s and the High Street and Park Road have period cottages. You can find 1930s and 1950s semi-detached houses in Empress Drive and Prince Imperial Road. There are plenty of 3-bedroomed 1930s houses in roads such as Westhurst Drive, Holmdale Road and Woodside Avenue.

New developments include Viscount Mews, off the High Street, which has 1 and 2-bedroom flats and duplexes which look like mews houses.

Survey Tip 1

All properties in Chislehurst, for example in streets such as Green Lane and Norlands Crescent, are in an area where flood alerts and 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, Chislehurst, including streets such as Chislehurst High Street and Willow Grove, is 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Chislehurst area mainly centre around the main road – Bromley Road - A222, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Bickley Park Road.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Chislehurst, incredibly important.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

I want a survey but the vendor cannot provide access

This is a recurring problem especially with the increase in online estate agents who do not take responsibility for access and rely on the vendors to make themselves available.

On occasion access issues may be due to vendors being away or sometimes simply because they do not want to take time off to allow access for a survey.

Buyers should ensure they complete all their property checks prior to exchange and the RICS survey forms an integral part of these checks.

Delays with vendors providing access can delay the whole conveyancing process. It is important to establish what the issue is to see whether a solution can be found.

If vendors are not available, suggest that the keys are left with the estate agent for collection or alternatively see if the vendor can arrange for a friend or family member to be at the property to allow access.
