Top tips for a Wandsworth Home Buyers Survey


Wandsworth’s northern river-front area has many very modern apartment blocks but the Toast Rack area of East Hill has very expensive Victorian-era townhouses.

Buildings around Southside shopping centre are being redeveloped; the old Arndale Centre which predated it had some quite prominent brutalist architecture. Predominantly Wandsworth has Victorian properties but with a fair amount of post-war buildings.

The areas around Bell Lane Creek and the River Wandle, including streets such as Twilley Street and Esparto Street, running through the middle of Wandsworth north to south as well as the banks of the River Thames to the north, are all subject to flood warnings and alerts.

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).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Wandsworth area are generally highest around Wandsworth High Street and Armoury Way in particular. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways in the area accompany the main line going into Clapham Junction station nearby, affecting streets close by such as Podmore Road and Nantes Close.
Wandsworth has a number of purpose built flats that are of traditional construction, comprising steel and concrete frame, fair faced cavity brick levation and part glazed and part rendered (sand and cement mix use for external wall coverings).

In a recent survey of Altura Tower, Bridges Court, SW11 3GZ, the property was built circa 2012 and benefited from enclosed wrap around balcony with panoramic views of river Thames; secure basement car parking space; secure intercom systems and underfloor heating.

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 in Wandsworth, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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.

Why do I need a survey?

The conveyancing process operates on the principle of ‘ caveat emptor ’ which means ‘let the buyer beware’ and it can be broken down in the following way.

Your solicitors make sure the property is legally okay to buy, the mortgage lender makes sure the property is financially okay to buy and the surveyor you hire to carry out a homebuyer report/building survey makes sure the property is structurally okay to buy.

In light of this, the purpose of the survey is to make sure you are aware of any defects present in the property when you buy it.

If defects are found, then the survey gives you the opportunity to bargain with the seller, whether it be a reduction in price or an agreement that the seller makes good on the work necessary before purchase.
