Top tips for a South East London Home Buyers Survey


South East London covers a relatively large area and has considerable history, so the type of housing and construction to be found there is incredibly architecturally diverse. Greenwich has many impressive buildings from various periods, particularly the Georgian and Victorian, such as the Royal Naval College and also houses the Dome, which is a well-known centre for various concerts etc.

More modern areas with standard construction 20th century properties, including council estates, include places like Orpington, whereas Dulwich has many Victorian properties of various sizes, ranging from classic terraces to very large detached mansions.

There are a fair few areas where modern apartments have been or are being built, some of which offer shared ownership or Help to Buy terms.

In South East London, all of Dulwich is in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time, not least because of the potential of flooding to come from the Ravensbourne River, to its east.

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 Orpington in South East London, including streets such as Novar close and Sequoia Gardens, 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.
Some properties in Greenwich in South East London may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Duke of Wellington Avenue, London SE18 6GP revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its 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.

Is asbestos testing included in my survey? Is the removal cost also quoted?

No, what the surveyor will do is let you know within the report that there are signs of asbestos based on their visual inspection and of the property's general style and age. If there are suspicions of asbestos you would be advised to get an asbestos specialist to test the grade of the asbestos within the property.

We have asbestos surveyors covering South East London and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards. All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory. At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
