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?

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. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Dulwich.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Dulwich has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

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 Dulwich 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.
