Top tips for a Herne Hill Home Buyers Survey


Herne Hill is an area of South London, sitting in two boroughs, Lambeth and Southwark. It grew extensively with the arrival of the railway in 1862. It hosts Brockwell Hall in Brockwell Park, built in 1831.

It has many Victorian, Edwardian and 1920s houses, with many divided into flats. Stradella Road has large detached double-fronted Edwardian houses and Carver Road has Twenties double-fronted semi-detached houses. 

There are many different styles of Victorian houses in the Poets' Road conservation area in roads such as Chaucer Road, Spenser road, Shakespeare Road and Milton Road. The Sunray Estate off Red Post Hill has cottages built in an area governed by garden suburb principles and built between 1920 and 1922.

New build developments include new 4-bedroom terrace houses in Hinton Road and the 99 Thurlow Park Road scheme which has 3-bedroom duplexes.

All properties in Herne Hill, in streets such as Effindale Road and Fawnbrake Aveneue, are built in an area where flood alerts 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, Herne Hill, including streets such as Carver Road and Herne Hill, 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.
A property based in Herne Hill, Valmar Road, SE5 9NH has Overhead Power Lines or Mobile Phone Masts within 250m of it.

Overhead lines and phone masts can be contentious and may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

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 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.

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.

Does the RICS Level 3 Building Survey include advice on extension works?

The RICS Building Survey report is a detailed defect report based on a visual inspection carried out by a Chartered Surveyor. The report is detailed and often includes photographs and a list itemising any defects identified with comment on any recommendations for remedial works or further investigations by specialists if required.

Advice on future works does not form part of the report but most surveyors are happy to provide their expert opinion on whether proposed works are possible. They may look at the position of manhole covers, height of the roof in the loft space, the floor joists in the loft space, and other structural indicators which would impede any proposed plans. This falls outside of the written report and any communications are usually provided on site or on the phone post inspection.

We would always recommend that you notify the surveyor that you might want to discuss proposed works with him, prior to the survey so he can ensure he takes this into account when completing his inspection.
