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 Thamesmead

Thamesmead straddles the boroughs of Greenwich and Bexley on the south bank of the River Thames. The area was built on reclaimed marshland beginning in the 1960s and as a result is still dominated by soulless tower blocks.

The original development fell well short of its 100,000-target population but there has been more recent development along the river and there are still plans for further developments. Thamesmead does have a shopping centre but nearby Abbey Wood is a better option and this pattern is repeated for most amenities. Residents are mostly families and first time buyers looking for a bargain.

Thamesmead doesn’t have a station of its own – tube or train – so Plumstead and Abbey Wood are the closest options. Plumstead has direct services to Cannon Street, London Bridge and Charing Cross while services from Abbey Wood go direct to Cannon Street and London Charing Cross.
