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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

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 they find any issues during the inspection, our surveyor will flag them up in the HomeBuyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them.

If you are concerned about woodworm, or any other defects with the property in Plumstead you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

Can I get my survey money back if the property falls through?

If the property falls through and you have already had a survey done on the property then the surveyor has already completed the work and there will be no refund.

Alternatively, what you can do is speak to the estate agent and offer for these to be purchased by their new buyer. Some sellers are receptive to this as it’ll speed up the process for future buyers, however not all sellers will agree.

It can be an annoying time when a property purchase falls through, so we will always look to work with you on your next property purchase to try and keep the next survey cost as low as possible.
