Top tips for a Deptford Home Buyers Survey

Although Deptford has a long maritime-related history, it has been extensively redeveloped and most latterly in the late 20th century, when the docklands in general was recreated as a financial area and with it, numerous apartment developments ranging from luxury flats to affordable living spaces. There are, however, some notable architectural survivals. These include the Olympia Warehouse in the former Deptford Dockyard, built in 1846 and which is Grade II listed, and Stone House, which was built between 1771 and 1773, also Grade II listed, which is very much a Georgian period property. The former Deptford Town Hall, now part of Goldsmiths College, is a fine-fronted Victorian municipal building.

Modern buildings include the McMillan Student Village on the junction of Creek Road and Deptford Church Street, which consists of small, self-contained apartments and rooms and Laban Dance Centre, which has very pleasing glass work.

There are also numerous new build developments, many of which offer Help to Buy and shared ownership terms.

If you're considering buying a property in or around Deptford, getting an Environmental Search Report, one of the main property conveyancing searches, is an important way to find out if there are environmental issues which might affect your enjoyment of the dwelling.

A recent such report, bought for a property in 423 New Cross Road, London SE14 6TA revealed that the property had the potential for natural ground instability within 50 metres of its vicinity. This might indicate that the property might be more susceptible to matters such as subsidence, however further professional tests would need to carried out to get a more definite idea.
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, all of Deptford, including streets such as Grinling Place and Lamerton Place, is 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.
Some properties in Deptford are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent Local Authority Search, the most important of the conveyancing property searches and always insisted-upon by your lender if you're buying using a mortgage, which was taken out for a property in Bowerhouse Court, Cofferdam Way, London SE8 3GQ revealed that the dwelling was in 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.

Additionally, the search revealed that an extension of the Bakerloo Line tube railway was planned to run in the vicinity of the property. If the plan goes ahead, this most likely might entail destruction during the construction period, but, most often, an uplift in price once any nearby tube stations are opened.

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 Deptford 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:
