Top tips for a Sidcup Home Buyers Survey


Sidcup is a suburb of southeast London which has a mixture of large Victorian and Edwardian properties alongside typical 1930s suburbia. It retains many parks and open spaces hinting at the great estates and large homes which once stood in the area.

There are interwar semi-detached properties in Hurst Road and Burns Avenue and 1970s semi-detached and terraces houses in roads like The Drive. There are large Victorian detached homes in Elm Road.

New build developments, particularly apartments, can be found in Lansdown Road and Granville Road.

Properties in Sidcup which are built in close proximity to the River Cray and the River Shuttle, in streets like Penhill Road and Albany Close, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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 Sidcup, including streets such as Black Hourse Road and Nelson Road, 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 from roads in the Sidcup area mainly centre around the main road – A6005, Castle Boulevard, impacting roads and streets such as Watery Lane and Lullingstone Crescent.

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.

What happens if your surveyor finds signs of damp?

If your RICS surveyor flags issues with damp during your defect survey then your next course of action is to contact a damp specialist. The damp surveyor will inspect internal and external walls and floorboards for visible signs of moisture using something called a moisture meter. Finally the surveyor will take a sample of the porous material by drilling into the wall, to see how damp it is.

If you are carrying out the damp survey as part of your due diligence before you buy the property, it is reasonable to ask the seller to cover the costs in your negotiations as the damp will have been worsening during the current owner's tenancy.
