Top tips for a Lambeth Home Buyers Survey


Lambeth has many high-rise buildings. The area's population was already rapidly increasing before the railway arrived in the 1840s. Property was extensively damaged in the bombing raids of the 2nd world war – the Victorian Swimming Baths were completely destroyed by a V2 rocket – but there are some survivals, such as part of the Lambeth Ragged School building (built 1851) which is occupied by the Beaconsfield Gallery.

The oldest building in Lambeth is the church of St Mary-at-Lambeth – home of the Garden Museum – while it has been rebuilt more than once, parts of it date back to pre-Norman times.

There are very modern luxury developments in the area such as the Aykon London One tower block in the Bondway. Shared ownership is available in some developments, such as can be found in, for example, Courtenay Street.

Properties built in Lambeth are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time, due to the locale's close proximity to the River Thames.

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 areas in the vicinity of Lambeth, including streets such as Magee Street and Bowling Green Street, 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.
Road noise pollution in Lambeth is generally highest along the Lambeth Palace Road. Railway noise pollution accompanies the main railway lines as they pass north to Waterloo Terminus Station in Lambeth, affecting nearby streets such as Sail Street, Ingram Close and Newport Street.

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.

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 Lambeth.

Does a surveyor use a ladder during a survey?

Surveyors come equipped with an array of tools and devices in order for them to diagnose and report on any defects internally and externally affecting the property that the client is looking to purchase.

Usually when clients ask whether a surveyor comes equipped with a ladder there is normally concern with a roof or a noted issue with the roofing. If you do have a concern then make sure you highlight this to the surveyor prior to their inspection to ensure it’s specifically reported on.

Your surveyor can come with a three meter ladder to access flat roofs or gain access to advantage points to assess harder to reach areas in conjunction with utilising telescopic camera mounts to document areas which are defective.
