Top tips for a Walworth Home Buyers Survey


Walworth is a district of southeast London in Southwark and sits between Camberwell and Elephant & Castle. It includes Old Kent Road, New Kent Road and Walworth Road. Its St Peter's Church, Walworth, built circa 1825, is an excellent example of the neo-classical style of church. Walworth is home to the Pullens buildings - a mixture of Victorian live/work spaces and yards.

Large amounts of regeneration and gentrification are occurring in Walworth, including the proposed demolition of the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, the new Strata tower and the demolition and regeneration of the Heygate and Aylesbury Estates .

New developments include the houses in Mill Lofts, County Street and the townhouses and flats in Elephant Park.

Virtually all properties in Walworth, located in streets such as Walcorde Avenue and King and Queen Street, are an in 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).
Properties in various parts of Walworth, including streets such as Fielding Street and Walworth Road A215, may well be affected by the Transport For London schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.
Properties in some areas of Walworth are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Fielding Street noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.

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?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Walworth.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Confusion can arise regarding mortgage valuations and HomeBuyers Surveys. The unfortunate result is that property buyers can sometimes find themselves having to spend a great deal of money repairing faults and defects which might well have - and ideally would have - formed part of the bargaining process with the vendor when negotiations were taking place.

Lenders appoint surveyors to carry out valuations to estimate market values of properties but the survey has no concern with investigating structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes and reports on defects and has a full appraisal and valuation of a property, which, most importantly, is completely independent of the mortgage lender. You can use this information to get quotes for how much it would cost to fix any defects detected in your property in Walworth.

More importantly, the survey can provide evidence which you can use to bargain with the seller about sharing repair costs. Book your HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Walworth by calling 0207 112 5388 and get yourself some well-earned peace of mind.
