Top tips for a Rotherhithe Home Buyers Survey


Rotherhithe is a residential district in southeast London and part of the London Borough of Southwark and is bordered by the Thames to its north. St. Mary's Church is at the centre of the old Rotherhithe village, which contains various historic buildings including the Brunel Engine House at the south end of the Thames Tunnel.

It has a long port history having had working docks until the 1970s when they were largely filled in. The 1980s saw many warehouse conversions and new build developments, the latter particularly around Russia Dock Road, for example the low-rise flats in Capstan Way. New build developments include the apartments in Verney Road, and Plaza House in Cathay Street and the terraced houses for sale in King Stairs Close.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Virtually all properties in Rotherhithe, located in streets such as Russia Dock Road and Capstan Way, are an in area where flood warnings and 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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Rotherhithe.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Hatteraick Road, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Properties in some areas of Rotherhithe may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Hatteraick Road revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Marine Conservation Zones - Thames Estuary.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

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?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, 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.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Rotherhithe.

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 flags up any of these defects in your property in Rotherhithe then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property has any other defects then you MUST get a RICS 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.

What happens if you choose the wrong survey for the type of property?

If once the Building Surveyor turns up to complete the survey, they feel the property does not suit the type of survey purchase, the surveyor will inform the client and the survey will not take place.

The scope of work of a HomeBuyer Report is different from that of a Building Survey. You an read the scope of work in a HomeBuyer Report here.

In most cases, the surveyor will agree to complete the appropriate inspection and then the client can pay the additional fee for the more appropriate survey.
