Top tips for a Grove Park Home Buyers Survey


Grove Park is a suburb in southeast London which developed mainly from 1871 when Grove Park station was completed for travel. There are some late Victorian semi-detached and terrace homes and some Edwardian properties but much of the housing was built as part of a housing estate built in the 1920s by the Metropolitan Borough of Lewisham.

There are some large detached properties in Guibal Road and Grove Park Road and many semi-detached properties in Jevington Way.

There are new build properties in Lee Road and Ottley Drive.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Grove Park which are situated close to the Quaggy River in streets such as Luffman Road and Marvels Lane are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Grove Park.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Lee High Road, SE12 8RS, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 250m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Properties in some areas of Grove Park are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Lee High Road, SE12 8RS noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

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 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 buy your home.

Does the surveyor climb onto the roof of the property?

The surveyor carries with them a ladder that allows them access to areas above head height. Due to Health and Safety, a RICS surveyor is not allowed to go higher than 3 meters.

The surveyor will use powerful binoculars to inspect the roof of a property to see signs of damage to the roof, tiles, chimney, soffets and fascias.

Flat roofs can be inspected from opening a window in the property and looking out to view the same.

If there is a need for a closer inspection of the roof, then scaffolding will be required to be obtained to allow safe access to the roof. It is very rare for this type of survey to be completed during the purchase of a property.
