Top tips for a Balham Home Buyers Survey


Balham is another of South London's suburbs which grew rapidly in the Victorian era, as evidenced by the number of Victorian terraced properties in the area. 

It is also notable for hosting Du Cane Court, the 1930s block of Art Deco flats which used to be the largest private residential estate in Europe. The Heavier Estate in Balham's south has larger Victorian houses and was originally the work of Alfred Heaver, a Victorian master builder.

You can also find very modern gated developments in the area such as can be found in Boundaries Road and shared ownership new builds such as at Aura House in Balham High Road.

Noise pollution from road and rail in Balham is at its highest in the vicinity of where the railway line crosses Balham High Street.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some buildings in an area to the north and west of the Balham area as it borders Tooting Bec, including parts of streets such as Holdernesse Road and Chetwoode Road, up to St George's Hospital, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

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.
For tiles rooves in Balham, where ventilation of the original roof space is not provided, it would be prudent to fit some form of ventilation in the soffites. The extension roofs have breathable under-tile felt to allow air circulation without the need of soffite vents. Without an intrusive inspection a RICS Building surveyor won't be able to comment on the condition of the felt under the tiles but if the bottom row of tiles is lifted some defects to the felt may come to light such as degrading where the felt is exposed above the gutters. If this has occur it is recommended that the decayed felt is replaced with new felt by a roofing contractor.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Balham and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Balham's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
