Top tips for a Catford Home Buyers Survey


Catford is a residential area in southeast London with a fair selection of Victorian and Edwardian houses, many of which have been converted into flats. 

There are large houses in the Culverley Green conservation area off Bromley Road and smaller 3 and 4-bedroom houses on the Corbett Estate, built around the turn of the 20th century, off Brownhill Road in roads such as Balloch Road, Muirkirk Road and Glenfarg Road.

You can find detached double-fronted Victorian houses in the Perry Fields conservation area east of Perry Rise and 1930s terrace houses in and around Conisborough Crescent and larger semi-detached houses from the same period in Daneswood Avenue.

The old Catford Greyhound Stadium is currently being redeveloped into nearly 600 houses including 113 for affordable rent and 60 sold under shared ownership terms.

Properties in Catford which are situated close to the Ravensbourne River in streets such as Doggett Road and Silvermere 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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Catford.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Laleham Road, SE6 2HU, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 250m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "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."

Properties in some areas of Catford are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Laleham Road, SE6 2HU, 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.

Does the survey include photos?

This depends on the surveyor completing the survey in Catford as some do not include photos. HomeBuyer Reports will rarely come with photos.

The surveyor may take photos and store them for his own personal records.

You should always ask at the outset if the surveyor includes photos.

Examples provided that include photos may not be reflective the the work undertaken by your specific surveyor.
