Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Lee


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.

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.
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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are looking at buying in Lee and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate. Call 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Lee.
