Top tips for a Tolworth Home Buyers Survey


Tolworth consists mainly of low-density 1930s semi-detached properties, and small to medium commercial and retail developments. Notable buildings in the area also include the Tolworth Tower, opened in 1963, which is 265 feet tall and has 22 floors; and two relatively modern churches being variously St George's, built in 1934 (Anglican) and Our Lady's, completed in 1958 (Catholic).

Properties in Tolworth built in close proximity to the Hogsmill River and its tributaries and channels, in streets such as Southwood Drive and Elmbridge Avenue, are in areas which might be subject to flood 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).
Properties in some areas of Tolworth are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Purbeck Avenue noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.
A recent Regulated Local Authority Search for a property in Kent Way, Tolworth KT6 7SP noted that the dwelling was in a local authority area that may be affected by the proposed Crossrail 2 route and additionally was subject to both a smoke control order and a Community Infrastructure Levy.

This sort of information can be vital in forming an opinion on whether to press ahead with buying a home you've looked at and also helps your conveyancing solicitor in their enquiries. More information about Crossrail can be accessed via the Crossrail portal

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.

Why do I need a survey if I have had a Mortgage Valuation?

A property survey is different from a mortgage valuation report. A valuation is a cursory look at a property to assess how much it is worth and whether it is suitable for a mortgage, this will include a note of any major works that might affect the value of the property however It is not a detailed inspection of the property’s condition.

Before buying a property, it’s a good idea to get a professional to carry out a thorough inspection. The Building survey and Homebuyers report will make you aware of problems with the property structure, repairs or alterations that need to be made and risk associated with the property.

Buying a new home is likely to be the most expensive purchase you ever make so it’s important to make sure you’re making a sound investment that won’t result in you losing money in the long run.
