Top tips for a West Norwood Home Buyers Survey


West Norwood is an area of South London which has streets with double-fronted Victorian and Edwardian houses, particularly on its side bordering West Dulwich, and St Luke's Church, built in the early 19th century, dominates the main thoroughfare, Norwood Road.

You can find 1920s semi-detached and terrace houses in numbers around Lavengro Road and Cheviot Road at the top of York Hill and mainly Victorian terrace houses on the side bordering Streatham, for example around Knollys Road and Julian's Farm Road.

New builds include The Triangle in nearby Gipsy Road, which offers 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, and the duplexes in Thurlow Park Road.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the West Norwood area mainly centre around the main road – Norwood Road/Knight's Hill, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses the Norwood Road.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of West Norwood, including streets such as St Faiths Road and Abbess Close, 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).

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.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Norwood Park Road, London, SE27 9UB, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

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.

What happens if the conveyancing falls through before the survey takes place will I get a full refund?

If you need to cancel the survey for any reason at all you need to ensure that you have given the surveyor 48 hours’ notice before the survey takes place. If the surveyor has 48 or more hours’ notice then you will be provided with a full refund.

If however you only give the surveyor 24 hours’ notice then there will be a penalty of £50 due to the fact that the surveyor will not be able to fill that slot in time.

If you cancel on the same day as the Survey Date, or any time after the surveyor has attended the property then no refund is due however the report will be delivered in accordance with the terms agreed with the surveyor.
