Top tips for a Forest Hill Home Buyers Survey


Forest Hill has some very steep roads, including Canonbie Road (which has many semi-detached houses from the 1930s) in the Honor Oak Park area: an 18% gradient is a challenge for nearly all cyclists! There are many Victorian houses and terrace properties in the area and some particularly large Victorian houses, many of which have been divided into conversion flats. Victorian semi-detached houses can be found in Wood Vale.

You can also find a few Georgian houses as well as 1930s semi-detached properties and Art Deco flats (such as can be found on Lordship Lane, Underhill Road and Taymount Rise).

New developments include Catford Green in Adenmore Road, which offers many different sizes of flat in a number of purpose-built medium-rise blocks. London Help to Buy is available for this scheme.

Local Tip 1
Local Tip 2
Local Tip 3
All properties in Forest Hill, including streets such as Cranston Road and Kemble Road, are in an area which is subject to flood 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).
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Dartmouth Road, SE23 3HN noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

This finding did not necessarily mean that there was a cause for concern in terms of the property's stability: active subsidence depends on local conditions such as the proximity of trees. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Properties in some areas of Forest Hill may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Kilgour Road, Forest Hill, SE23 1PQ that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

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