Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Waddon


Waddon is an area to the west and southwest of Croydon in South London. It dates back at least to the 12th century. The Hare and Hounds pub first opened in 1773. Its railway station opened in 1863.

Waddon has an older area with 19th-century properties, some even older, close to central Croydon. Further south is a large estate of Council-owned and former Council-owned homes and a small number of tower blocks. In the inter-war years Waddon had the most Croydon Corporation owned homes in Croydon with 1,125 council houses and 80 council flats.

New build developments include the flats in the Waddon House medium-rise block in Stafford Road.

All of the properties built in the Waddon area are subject to flood alerts from time to time and those built in close proximity to the River Wandle, in streets such as Wandle Road and Richmond Road are in an area where flood warnings are issued 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, Waddon, including streets such as Duppas Hill Road and Waddon Park Avenue, is 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 Waddon area mainly centre around the main road – Epsom Road, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Haslucks Purley Way.
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.

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.
