Top tips for a Dulwich Home Buyers Survey


Dulwich has distinct areas, namely Dulwich Village, East Dulwich, West Dulwich and the North Dulwich Triangle (part of Herne Hill).

Dulwich Village is the most affluent area, with still surviving large Georgian merchant's houses alongside small peasants' cottages from the period.

Owners of any houses in the Dulwich Estate area have to seek approval for even the smallest change to their properties' external appearances.

There are Victorian and Edwardian detached, semi-detached and terrace houses dominating the streets bordering Herne Hill and West Dulwich, while there are many detached Fifties houses in private roads around the village.

There are also estates of flats and houses built by local builder, Wates, in the Sixties, and an enclave of modern, German factory-built, energy-efficient Huf Haus homes.

There are few modern developments in the area.

All of Dulwich is in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time, not least because of the potential of flooding to come from the Ravensbourne River, to its east.

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 parts of Dulwich, including streets such as Ruskin Walk and Holmdene Road, 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from road traffic in the Dulwich area are at their highest around the A406 South Circular Road, affecting nearby streets such as Carson Road and Alleyn Park. Noise pollution is also caused by the railway line as it passes south, linking Herne Hill, West Dulwich and Sydenham Hill Stations, affecting streets nearby such as Acacia Grove and Croxted Road.

Noise levels are at their highest generally where the South Circular Road and the railway intersect at West Dulwich Station.

LondonGreater 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?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Dulwich, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Dulwich then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property has any other defects then you MUST get a RICS Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

When should you book your survey?

A survey from booking to getting your report should normally take around 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year (busy periods are July, August and December).

The best advice is to instruct your surveyor at the same time as you instruct your solicitor. The reason being is that your solicitor tells you of any legal reason to not buy the property and the surveyor will look to tell you if their is any visual reason to stop buying or to renegotiate the selling price.
