Top tips for a Kidbrooke Home Buyers Survey


Houses in Kidbrooke in south east London mainly consist of 1920s and 1930s standard construction semi-detached properties. 

It used to host the Ferrier Estate, a deprived council estate, but this has been redeveloped into new properties and is now called Kidbrook Village. 

Properties in this development are frequently sold as shared ownership, such as can be found in Merlin Court and Meridian Gate.

Properties built in the vicinity of the Quaggy River in Kidbrooke, such as in Weigall 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 Kidbrooke, including streets such as Moorhead Way and Richmount 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.
Road noise pollution in Kidbrooke is at its highest normally around the A2, affecting nearby streets such as Rochester Way, Chiswell Square and Woolacombe Road. There are raised levels of noise pollution from the railway line, additionally, which passes through Kidbrooke Station, affecting nearby streets such as Boyd Way and Edgeworth Road.

The A2 and the railway run alongside each other, as the railway passes south from Kidbrooke Station, combining these aspects of noise pollution and affecting nearby streets such as Will Crooks Gardens and Horsfeld Road.

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in Kidbrooke.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

How do I arrange access?

On instruction, we take a few key details from you, one of which being the details of the estate agent managing the property.

We then organise access with the estate agent and determine whether they hold keys to the property or if the property is accessed via the owner (vendor).

We then let the estate agent know the surveyor's intended arrival time and finalise the survey date.

In the event that the property is accessed through the vendor, gaining access can be tricky.

Often the vendor will have to find time away from work/private life in order to accommodate the survey which can lead to having to revise the date of survey.

Often in worst case scenarios (i.e. the vendor being on holiday), the vendor can leave their keys with the estate agents or a neighbour who are then the port of call to arrange access.
