Top tips for a Downham Home Buyers Survey


Downham, a suburb in southeast London, had no houses prior to 1920 barring a shooting range near Rangefield Road and some farm buildings.

The London County Council built the Downham Estate at the end of the 1920s which consisted of more than 5,000 homes of various sizes and more than 400 apartment complexes of 4 storeys in an area of relatively low population density, given its size and homes built to a good standard.

A typical street is Downham Way and Keedonwood Road, which have many pleasant semi-detached properties built between 1924 and 1938.

Properties in Downham which are built in close proximity to the Ravensbourne River, in streets like Old Bromley Road and Brangbourne 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 Downham, including streets such as Haddington Road and Chelford Road, 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Downham area mainly centre around the main road – A21, Bromley Road, impacting roads and streets such as Firmell Close and Old Bromley Road.

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