Top tips for a Waddon Home Buyers Survey


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.

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 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 and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Waddon.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Waddon has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

How do I arrange access?

On instruction, we take a few key details from you, one of which being the details of the estate agent managing the property. We then organise access with the estate agent and determine whether they hold keys to the property or if the property is accessed via the owner (vendor). We then let the estate agent know the surveyor's intended arrival time and finalise the survey date.

In the event that the property is accessed through the vendor, gaining access can be tricky. Often the vendor will have to find time away from work/private life in order to accommodate the survey which can lead to having to revise the date of survey. Often in worst case scenarios (i.e. the vendor being on holiday), the vendor can leave their keys with the estate agents or a neighbour who are then the port of call to arrange access.
