Top tips for a Streatham Home Buyers Survey


Streatham shares much in common with other South London suburbs in that most of its buildings date back to the Victorian era. Wellfield Road and Sunnyhill Road still have the classic terraced houses and large homes which hail from that period.

Large numbers of flat blocks along the High Road were built in the 1930s and there are a fair few highly modern developments many of which offer Shared Ownership flats and housing which can be bought under the Help to Buy scheme.

The areas immediately around the River Graveney in Streatham Vale, including buildings in streets such as Abercairn Road and Bencroft Road, are subject to flood warnings and land south of the A214, particularly to the east and south of Streatham Common, is subject to flood alerts.

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 buildings in an area to the north and east of the Streatham area, including parts of Coburg Crescent and Palace Road, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

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 common feature for homes in Streatham are a canopy at the front entrance which is built of timber and the roof is formed in two slopes which are covered with bitumen felt having a mineralised surface. You need a Building surveyor to check if the felt is beginning to weather and if the felt is deteriorating it is recommend that it is replaced with a better material such as lead sheet./div>

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 RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Streatham.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Streatham has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Do your surveyors operate with time limits?

Unfortunately some surveyors in the industry do put time limits on how long they will inspect the property regardless of whether they properly finish the inspection or not.

This isn’t a challenge we encounter as our surveyors operate by staying on site as long as the inspection requires before leaving or if it really cannot be completed in one day, revisiting the next to ensure a full inspection is completed prior to submitting a report to a client.
