Top tips for a New Cross Home Buyers Survey


New Cross is a district of Lewisham in southeast London and hosts Goldsmiths College of the University of London, which was originally the Royal Naval School, established in 1843. Goldsmiths also uses the former Deptford Town Hall in 1903-5 in the Edwardian Baroque style. The fire station was built in 1893-4.

Much of the property in the area is from the late Victorian era – there are large Victorian homes and the conservation areas of New Cross around Telegraph Hill and Brockley around Hilly Fields provide sought after, grand double fronted Victorian villas. Conversions are available, but many of the properties remain as undeveloped family homes.

The council built houses in the area from the 1920s and after the 2nd world war, along with private builders, the council built houses to replace those destroyed by German bombing raids. These estates include, among others, the Erlanger Road Estate, the Kender Street Estate, the Malpas Road Estate, the Shardeloes Road Estate and the Winslade Estate.

There are new build developments in Tanners Hill, comprising 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments and some are sold under shared ownership.

All of New Cross is an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time and flood warnings are issued for dwellings in streets to the area's north from time to time, in streets such as New Cross Road and Sanford Street.

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 parts of New Cross, including streets such as Dixon Road and Laurie Grove, 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.
A recent Environmental Search for a property on Oak Hill Gardens, Woodford Green, Essex, IG8 9DY, is 250m of an area that is likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. This means that there may be constraints on property or land developments or alterations due to areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance;.

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 non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in New Cross.

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 the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in New Cross has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Can I negotiate the price with the seller’s solicitor?

Within the survey report there will be a section for your legal advisor. If there are any defects spotted at the property that require further attention it will be noted in this section of the report and your solicitor can flag these with in her enquiries.

Should there be any issues raised by your building surveyor that will be costly in the future, you can discuss options with the seller. It’s typical to negotiate one of two resolutions: either the seller agrees to accept a lower offer price for the property, or they agree to carry out the required repairs as a condition of the sale. In the latter case, this agreement would usually be confirmed in writing as part of the legal contract. Make sure that all correspondence regarding negotiations with the sellers is agreed by both solicitors.
