Top tips for a Honor Oak Park Home Buyers Survey


Honor Oak Park in southeast London with large semi-detached houses, along with many double-fronted five- and six-bedroom Edwardian houses, many in Wood Vale and in the "Crimean Corner" — roads named after locations significant in the Crimean war, including Marmora, Mundania and Therapia Roads, off Forest Hill Road. 

There are also Victorian, Edwardian and later terrace houses and a few purpose-built flats. Many of the houses have been converted into flats, with those in the Crimean Corner roads particularly spacious. Lessing Street and Wyleu Street off Honor Oak Park have interesting Arts & Crafts houses and flats.

There are also a group of self-build houses in Walters Way and a new development in nearby Catford Green, offering more than 600 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments overlooking Ladywell Fields, with some flats being sold under shared ownership terms.

All properties in Honor Oak Park, including in streets such as Boveney Road and Codrington Hill, are in an area which is subject to flood 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 in some areas of Honor Oak are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Queenswood Road, SE23 2QS 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.
Properties in various parts of Honor Oak, including streets such as Queenswood Road and Holland Drive may well be affected by the Transport for London schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.

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 is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Honor Oak Park and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Honor Oak Park which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem 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.

Why do I need a survey if I have had a Mortgage Valuation?

A property survey is different from a mortgage valuation report. A valuation is a cursory look at a property to assess how much it is worth and whether it is suitable for a mortgage, this will include a note of any major works that might affect the value of the property however It is not a detailed inspection of the property’s condition.

Before buying a property, it’s a good idea to get a professional to carry out a thorough inspection. The Building survey and Homebuyers report will make you aware of problems with the property structure, repairs or alterations that need to be made and risk associated with the property.

Buying a new home is likely to be the most expensive purchase you ever make so it’s important to make sure you’re making a sound investment that won’t result in you losing money in the long run.
