Top tips for a Walworth Home Buyers Survey


Walworth is a district of southeast London in Southwark and sits between Camberwell and Elephant & Castle. It includes Old Kent Road, New Kent Road and Walworth Road. Its St Peter's Church, Walworth, built circa 1825, is an excellent example of the neo-classical style of church. Walworth is home to the Pullens buildings - a mixture of Victorian live/work spaces and yards.

Large amounts of regeneration and gentrification are occurring in Walworth, including the proposed demolition of the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, the new Strata tower and the demolition and regeneration of the Heygate and Aylesbury Estates .

New developments include the houses in Mill Lofts, County Street and the townhouses and flats in Elephant Park.

Virtually all properties in Walworth, located in streets such as Walcorde Avenue and King and Queen Street, are an in area where flood warnings and alerts 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).
Properties in various parts of Walworth, including streets such as Fielding Street and Walworth Road A215, may well be affected by the Transport For London schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.
Properties in some areas of Walworth are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Fielding Street 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.

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.

What’s the difference between the HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

The HomeBuyer Report is a survey carried out on smaller properties of a simpler design such as purpose built flats, bungalows, maisonettes and post-1950s houses of standard construction. The HomeBuyer Report comes in a standard format and can give a great general view regarding a property's construction and condition.

In contrast, Building Surveys are bespoke and better suited to larger and/or older properties where the original construction material may have degraded and requires further commenting on outside of the scope of a HomeBuyer Report.
