Top tips for a Wimbledon Home Buyers Survey


Wimbledon has an almost rural and very affluent village on its hill and a largish town which developed at the bottom of the hill when the railway arrived in 1838 and which brought with it a building boom.

Wimbledon has a wide selection of family houses, from large Twenties or new-build detached mansions with spacious gardens, to small, two-bedroom period cottages. There are also blocks of flats, both older style and modern.

Streets in and around the village, such as Marryat Road, Lingfield Road, The Grange, Murray Road, Highbury Road and Parkside, have large detached houses, some period (Georgian onwards) and others very modern rebuilds.

Nearby Raynes Park has many four-bedroom Twenties houses and Wimbledon Hill Park in Copse Hill is a new build development of mainly flats (with a few houses) built in period and modern style.

Properties in Wimbledon which are built in close proximity to the River Wandle, in streets like Steerforth Street and Maskell Road, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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, some parts of Wimbledon, including streets such as Hoyle Road and Bickley Street, 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 on Russell Road, London, SW19 1LN, 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.

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.

Don't release your survey report to anyone!

The survey report belongs to you and should be used to support you in the decision of whether to proceed with buying the property at the current asking price.

You should never release the full surveyor's report to the seller or the selling estate agent as it may contain information that could weaken your bargaining position. The best advice is to only release snippets from the report that you are discussing with the seller or are looking to negotiate on.
