The procedure is non-intrusive.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Kenley


Kenley is a district in the south of Croydon Borough in South London. The railway, when it arrived in 1856 was a huge spur to urban development and by the end of the Victorian era, many large houses had been constructed, particularly during the 1860s, with more modest Victorian terraces and cottages around Godstone Road in the 1880s. More compact housing was constructed in the Roke area around the turn of the century.

All Saint's Church was built in 1870 but enlarged twice by 1902. Construction continued into the 20th century, with many semi-detached houses being built in the early period. Kenley was a target of the Blitz during the 2nd world war but the raids were largely unsuccessful. In the postwar period, many of the substantial Victorian properties with their extensive grounds were developed for executive housing.

New build developments include the detached houses in Trueman Road, Welcomes Road, Hadley Wood Rise and Kearton Close and bungalows in Wattendon Road. Flat developments are in Godstone Road and Lower Road and semi-detached properties are in Whitefield Avenue, Burwood Avenue, Valley Road and Steyning Close.

Virtually all properties in Kenley, located in streets such as Little Roke Avenue and Kenmore Road, are an in 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).

Properties in some areas of Kenley may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Hayes Lane revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Ancient Woodland, Local Nature Reserves - Foxley Wood and Sites of Special Scientific Interest - Riddlesdown.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

Properties in various parts of Kenley, including streets such as Hayes Lane and Steyning Close, may well be affected by the Crossrail, Tramway and HS2 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.
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.

Which walls does the surveyor report on?

RICS surveyors assess the accessible areas of a property of which the roof structure, ceilings, walls and partitions are included. These areas are normally divided up into internal and external sections within the final report.

Often a surveyor will comment on the building materials of the walls or partitions, noting any structural movement or signs of subsidence and on any signs of damp/rising damp.

Also, if requested before the inspection, a surveyor can often provide their professional opinion on works you may have planned for the property.
