Top tips for a Lee Home Buyers Survey


Lee a suburban district of southeast London, mainly developed in the mid-19th century and has mainly Victorian housing stock. Boone's Chapel was built in 1682.

North of Lee High Road in Dacre Park, Church Terrace and Brandram Road and along Burnt Ash Road, you can find excellent early Victorian villas and terrace houses. Cambridge Drive and Manor Park has later, larger Victorian houses, many of which have been divided into flats.

The Lee Manor conservation area has roads mainly consisting of 3 and 4-bedroom Victorian terrace houses. You can also find 1920s and 1930s detached and semi-detached houses in Upwood Road and Horn Park Lane and 1930s semi-detached properties in Holme Lace Road and Dallinger Road.

Kidbrook Village is being regenerated with more than 4,000 new homes over the next 15-20 years which will consist of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom flats as well as 3, 4 and 5-bedroom houses. Around 1,000 homes have so far been built.

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Lee which are situated close to the Quaggy River in streets such as Manor Lane and Handen Road 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).
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Lee, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Drainage Experts Ltd., 270 Northview, Swanley BR8 7TD
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Lee area mainly centre around the main road Burnt Ash Hill A2212 and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Glenmere Row.

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 is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Lee.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you get a mortgage for your property in Lee your mortgage lender requires you to pay for a mortgage valuation survey of the property. The aim of this survey is to give the mortgage lender reassurance that the property is worth what you are paying. Although you pay for the mortgage valuation survey, it belongs to the mortgage lender and often you won't be allowed to see it.

It is paramount that when buying a property you get your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as subsidence can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.


A HomeBuyer Survey will give you reassurance to buy your new home without worrying about what is in the closet. If you aren't sure what you should do or which HomeBuyer Survey to get call us and we'll talk you through the options - this is what we do!
