Top tips for a Lewisham Home Buyers Survey


Lewisham has had two large regeneration schemes in recent years, bringing with them more than 1,000 new homes but its conservation areas have many Victorian and Edwardian properties, such as can be found in Brookmill Road. There are French baroque-style houses in Micheldever Road.

Some homes date from when wealthy merchants in the 17th and 18th centuries built large houses with large grounds in the locale, although most have been knocked down as the area became further developed, with higher density housing, something which occurred in the middle of the 19th century.

You can find bow-fronted cottages in the terraces around St John's and Brookmill conservation areas. You can find new build homes in the Renaissance development in Loampit Vale, which consist of medium-/high-rise flat blocks (between 8 and 24 stories). In the Ladywell area, you can find many excellent homes built by Jerrard in the Victorian period. These properties have Italianate gable ends and rounded windows.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Lewisham, including streets such as Belmont Hill and Blessington Road, 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Lewisham area are highest around the main roads of Molesworth Street A21 and Lewisham High Street A20, affecting nearby streets such as Lewis Grove, Engate Street and Myron Place.

Raised levels of noise pollution from railways centre around the various railway lines which pass through Lewisham and St Johns Stations, affecting nearby streets such as Vian Street and Elmira 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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

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 buy your home.

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 you are concerned about your property in Lewisham having any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. 

If you can identify the defect 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Any number of people have been understandably confused between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Lewisham you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects the property may have.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any defects which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.

This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.


Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is squarely for your benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0207 112 5388 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
