Top tips for a Welling Home Buyers Survey


Welling is a town in Bexley Borough in southeast London. It was a village until the railway arrived in 1895, which spurred housing development.

After World War I, Bexley Urban District Council built over 400 houses north of the railway mainly of semi-detached houses, terrace houses and flat blocks. It has a Georgian mansion house – Danson House in Danson Park.

There are Victorian terrace houses in Upper Wickham Lane. There are 1930s semi-detached houses – and many of them – in areas such as Selwyn Crescent and Elsa Road.

New build developments include Baltimore Place for 1 and 2-bedroom retirement homes and flats in Welling High Street.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Welling, including streets such as Northdown Road and Somerhill Road, are 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).

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 identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of the property you are thinking of buying in Welling which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost. To get yours, call 0207 112 5388.
