Top tips for a Thornton Heath Home Buyers Survey


Thornton Heath's property styles are mainly Victorian; housing increased rapidly with the arrival of the railway in the 1860s. Some grand properties still survive and St Alban's church, a listed building from the period, was mainly constructed using the classic red bricks.

There is council housing stock in the area and shared ownership opportunities which can, for example, often be found in Brigstock Road.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

The Environment Agency issues flood warnings from time to time in the locale of the Norbury Brook in Thornton Heath (so e.g. around the streets of Boswell Road and Kynaston Road).

Flood alerts have in the past been issued for a much larger area, including the whole of Thornton Heath and surrounding it on all sides in South London.

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).
Ground instability caused by natural factors could cause subsidence issues for certain areas in Thornton Heath.

With the above said, The British Geological Survey has assessed that hazards because of underground non-coal mine workings in this area are unlikely. If you are concerned the property has subsidence you should inform your Building Surveyor.
You should ensure all electrical work that falls under Part P of the Building Regulations. You should use a qualified electrician who can self certify their work to ensure there are no issue on sale:

London.pngGreater 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are looking at buying in Thornton Heath and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate. Call 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Thornton Heath.
