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.

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