Top tips for a Woolwich Home Buyers Survey


Woolwich, an area of southeast London which has the Thames bordering it to the north, has much social housing, where Right to Buy has been very prominent, but where Woolwich merges with Plumstead to the east and Charlton to the west, there are roads of Victorian terrace houses.

You can find converted flats in the Royal Herbert Pavilions off Shooters Hill Road. There is a small estate of Thirties semi-detached houses off Mereworth Drive at the top of Eglinton hill and there are also enclaves of Walter Segal self-build houses at Parish Wharf on Prospect Vale and Llanover Road.

There are many new developments, including Royal Arsenal Riverside, which is planned to provide more than 5,000 homes in the coming years consisting of period conversions and new builds.

All properties in Woolwich are in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time and those built close to the River Thames, in streets such as Harlinger Street and Venus Road, are subject to flood warnings 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 Woolwich, including streets such as Rodmere Street and Colomb Street, 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.
Wind energy is one of several alternative energy sources; however, location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact on the surrounding area.

A recent envirosearch stated that a property on the road of East Carriage House, Duke Of Wellington Avenue, London, SE18 6GP, was found to be within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.

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, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Woolwich.

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.

If the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Woolwich then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Does your surveyor check the chimney?

If you're buying a period property which features a chimney you will want to ensure there are no defects or issues with pointing that may cause you issues in the future.

Your RICS surveyor will assess the exterior of a chimney usually from ground level or a nearby vantage point/accessible flat roof to note any issues visible and advise accordingly.

Internally your surveyor will visually check for any signs of structural movement and that the flue is clear, however, this is only possible if accessible.

You should note, however, that surveyors are not structural engineers and so they may advise a further inspection is carried out by such a suitable specialist if suspicions of defects are noted.
