Top tips for a Vauxhall Home Buyers Survey


Vauxhall is very popular with foreign investors, who continue to invest heavily in modern residential blocks in the area. Very visible are the two 50-storey modern tower blocks (River City and City Tower) of One Nine Elms.

The locale has seen substantial redevelopment but there are surviving properties from earlier periods. Fentiman road has four-storey Victorian terrace houses popular with MPs. There are also smaller Victorian terrace houses in the streets off Wandsworth Road.

Among the new builds are Nine Elms Point, which has two towers and seven other buildings and nearly one-tenth of the 645 flats are affordable; the Key Bridge development includes Keybridge Lofts, a redevelopment of the 37-story BT building in South Lambeth Road (the UK's tallest brick tower) and Affinity Sutton at Nine Elms Point, which offers 29 shared ownership flats.

Properties built in Vauxhall are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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 areas in the vicinity of Vauxhall, including streets such as Handforth Road and Crewdson Road, 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.
Noise pollution from roads in the Vauxhall area centres on the ring of roads of Parry Street/South Lambeth Road/A3036/A3204 and affects nearby streets such as Vauxhall Grove and Bondway.

Noise pollution from railways is raised because Vauxhall is a major interchange station for overland and underground (Victoria) railway lines, affecting nearby streets such as Albert Embankment and Goding Street. The station, being in the middle of the ring of roads, is at the epicentre of raised noise pollution levels.

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 identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Vauxhall and what needs to be done to remedy it.

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people mistakenly think a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave home buyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the vendor.

The lender's surveyor conducts a mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are interested in buying in Vauxhall and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey itemises defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender.

You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and it gives you the evidence potentially to share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Vauxhall.
