Top tips for a Peckham Home Buyers Survey


Peckham has every sort of property from Georgian houses, mainly in Peckham Rye, to flat-fronted and bow-fronted Victorian terrace properties, with many turned into flats, and there are plenty of standard construction semi-detached homes built from the 1930s onwards as well as some very new developments and redevelopments.

The Aylesham Centre is being redeveloped into flats and shops and the Catcher Building, which is a fine Art Deco building in Rye Lane, is being converted into 31 flats. 

Some 85 per cent of the flats in Crest Nicholson's Wood Road scheme have been available to buy under the Help to Buy scheme and 29 flats have been available under shared ownership terms. 

Some 22 of the flats in the 237-247 Rye Lane Metropolitan housing association development have also been made available under shared ownership terms.

Peckham's northern area, north of Queen's Road, is subject to flood warnings from time to time, such as for the buildings in Peckham Park Road, and all of the locale is in an area where flood alerts are issued 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Peckham, including streets such as Harders Road and Maya Close, 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 in the Peckham area centre on the main Peckham Road as it connects into Hanover Park and then Rye Lane and affects nearby streets such as Marmont Road and Cerise Road.

Raised levels of noise pollution from railways in the Peckham area centre on the railway line which passes through Peckham Rye station, affecting streets such as Blenheim Grove and Copeland Road making the highest levels of noise pollution from both around where Rye Lane intersects with Peckham Rye Station, affecting nearby streets such as Holly Grove and Elm Grove.

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.

When should you book your survey?

A survey from booking to getting your report should normally take around 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year (busy periods are July, August and December).

The best advice is to instruct your surveyor at the same time as you instruct your solicitor. The reason being is that your solicitor tells you of any legal reason to not buy the property and the surveyor will look to tell you if their is any visual reason to stop buying or to renegotiate the selling price.
