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 Sydenham

Officially Sydenham lies in the London Borough of Lewisham although on the outskirts some roads fall into Southwark and Bromley.

Sydenham is where the Crystal Palace originally erected in Hyde Park was moved to and is now the home of Crystal Palace National Sports Centre. It is also said to be home to the Beast Of Sydenham, a 6ft panther like animal, but don’t let that put you off.

Sydenham boasts many grand Victorian Villas, some converted into spacious flats, as well as rows of Victorian terraces and semis. The area is popular with families and first time buyers, which makes for a bustling community feel and excellent local amenities.

Although Sydenham doesn’t currently have an underground station that is due to change when East London Line extensions finish this year. Currently trains run directly from Sydenham to London Bridge, London Victoria and London Charing Cross. For local transport the bus network is extensive and frequent.
