Top tips for a Norbury Home Buyers Survey


Norbury is a town in southwest London. The railway arrived in 1878, but did not greatly accelerate housing development.

A first phase of house building by London County Council of nearly 500 terraced ‘cottage homes’ was mostly complete by 1910, accom¬panied within two years by a handful of shops.

After the First World War the LCC built a second phase of its cottage estate, influenced by the design of Hampstead Garden Suburb.

Croydon council added more municipal dwellings in the latter part of the 1920s and acquired the 18-hole North Surrey golf course in 1935, which it then laid out as Norbury Park.

Since the Second World War the most visible change to Norbury’s built envir¬onment has been the construction of office blocks on London Road, mostly in the early 1960s.

Recent new build developments include the flats in a Victorian conversion in Ellison Road, where the Help to Buy scheme can be used to assist buyers.

Properties in Norbury, London which are built in the vicinity of the Norbury Brook, in roads such as Norbury Avenue, Norbury Crescent and Dunbar Avenue, 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).
Properties in some areas of Norbury may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Norbury Hill revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Ancient Woodland - Biggin Wood .

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Norbury.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Norbury Hill, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

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 is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Norbury, incredibly important.

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.

My property is a period flat, do I need a building survey?

This is a commonly asked question and it depends on the property to be inspected.

For a homebuyers report the surveyor is inspecting the property itself and common parts.

If the property is a first floor flat with a garden flat below and a top floor flat above, there really is very little merit in instructing a full building survey as the surveyor has limits to what he can comment on.

If however the property to be purchased is the garden flat, then the surveyor is likely to have access to the front and rear of the property so is able to complete a more thorough inspection and therefore able to provide a more detailed report. So a building survey would be possible.

Always provide the postcode so that you can get guidance on what survey best suit your property.
