Top tips for a South East London Home Buyers Survey


South East London covers a relatively large area and has considerable history, so the type of housing and construction to be found there is incredibly architecturally diverse. Greenwich has many impressive buildings from various periods, particularly the Georgian and Victorian, such as the Royal Naval College and also houses the Dome, which is a well-known centre for various concerts etc.

More modern areas with standard construction 20th century properties, including council estates, include places like Orpington, whereas Dulwich has many Victorian properties of various sizes, ranging from classic terraces to very large detached mansions.

There are a fair few areas where modern apartments have been or are being built, some of which offer shared ownership or Help to Buy terms.

In South East London, all of Dulwich is in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time, not least because of the potential of flooding to come from the Ravensbourne River, to its east.

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 Orpington in South East London, including streets such as Novar close and Sequoia Gardens, 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.
Some properties in Greenwich in South East London may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Duke of Wellington Avenue, London SE18 6GP revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.
