What type of property survey should you have?

If you are taking out a mortgage the lender will insist upon carrying out a valuation inspection. Although you will bear the cost of this it is just a valuation for the lender's purposes and not a survey. The two most common types of property survey are an RICS Homebuyer Survey and Valuation, often referred to as a Homebuyer's Report and a Building Survey. The Homebuyer's Report will be suitable in most cases. The exceptions are properties that are more than 150 years old, that have been substantially altered or that have known structural problems. If any of these exceptions apply a Building Survey, previously known as a Full Structural survey, will be more appropriate.

Information on Deptford

Deptford is located on the south of the River Thames, between New Cross and Greenwich. It was historically a famous port but there is not much river activity in the area today.

Deptford has always been known as the poor neighbour of Greenwich. However, in recent years the area has undergone something of a makeover, with trendy cafes and bars opening up. This has come about as a knock-on effect of Goldsmiths College (University of London) with its long list of Turner-prize nominated alumni. There is a bustling market on Wednesdays and Saturdays and its proximity to Greenwich means there are plenty of shopping and recreation facilities close by. There has been a great deal of housing development in the area with a number of contemporary apartment blocks helping to attract upwardly mobile residents.

Deptford has good transport links and the recent completion of the DLR station at Deptford Bridge has made it even more accessible. The train station is in zone 2 and you can get a train into Cannon Street in 10 minutes.
