Top tips for a Shirley Home Buyers Survey


Shirley is one of Croydon's suburbs, to its east, in the South London area. Its windmill was built in 1848, when Shirley was still a small village.

Most properties in Shirley are detached, semi-detached and terrace houses from the 1930s. There are large detached houses in big plots in the private roads such as Bishops Walk, Pine Coombe and Birch Hill off Upper Shirley Road and Shirley Hills Road and semi-detached properties south of Wickham Road.

The Lawdon Estate, however, consists of well-designed 1970s houses in Regency Walk, Sloane Walk and Kempton Walk off Orchard Way.

There are new build houses and flats in Penhurst Square in Grant Road in nearby Addiscombe, with 11 of the 65 properties being classed as affordable and 4 being offered under shared ownership terms.

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 Shirley 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.
