Top tips for a Plumstead Home Buyers Survey


Plumstead is an area of southeast London in Greenwich Borough.

It expanded rapidly in the 1880s when a large number of terrace houses were built close to the river to house workers in the Royal Arsenal factory. It has developed steadily since then, with, for example, lots of 1930s style semis around Chelsworth Drive, 1950s low-rise flats in Shrewsbury Lane and renovated modern flats in Herbert Road.

New build developments include the Waterfront apartment complex at Royal Arsenal Riverside and the modern block of flats in Victory Parade, Plumstead Road, among others.

All properties in Plumstead are in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time and properties in the north of Plumstead, roughly those built in streets north of the railway station and of the A206, in streets such as Mallard Path and Pettacre Close, are in an area where flood warnings 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, Plumstead, including streets such as Tewson Road and Lakedale Road, is 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 property in Calderwood Street, London, SE18 6JG has Overhead Power Lines or Mobile Phone Masts within 250m of it.

Overhead lines and phone masts can be contentious and may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

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.

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Plumstead, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People, particularly first time buyers, 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 spend money on expensive repair costs which should have been divided up with the seller 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 trying to buy in Plumstead 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, or even deciding not to go ahead with buying a property. Call 0207 112 5388 and speak to our experts to book your HomeBuyers Survey.
