"The people were friendly but we had a problem initially due to a conflict of interest that nobody could explain, which turned out not to be a conflict of interest, but caused stress and confusion when arranging the survey. Other than that the process was straightforward. The survey itself appears thorough but there are a lot of areas that cant be commented on. There were some discrepancies within the report but upon calling the surveyor he was friendly and helpful. The survey and report were completed within a week of booking - quick turn around time. "

"The survey was extremely detailed and conducted without any admin issues or much input from us which was welcome. However it was not easy to get hold of anyone from the office to discuss the results of our survey, which had raised some serious issues with the house we intended purchase. Whilst I appreciate this was due to our particular surveyor being on leave for a week, we were unable to discuss the findings with anyone else from the team during that time and struggled to get hold of our surveyor when he was back. I am just flagging as I feel that particular when a survey has found major issues, it would be ideal to discuss these ASAP to minimise stress and anxiety."

Our unique data reveals that the most popular survey type for Lambeth users is the RICS Level 2 Survey, with just under 65% requesting this type of property survey. An overwhelming majority of 40.68% needed the RICS Level 2 Survey for flats and apartments whilst only 2.61% were for detached homes. This isn’t surprising as flats are often a popular choice amongst movers in Central London.
We also discovered that many users purchasing flats also requested RICS Level 3 Surveys which is fairly unusual as the RICS Level 2 Survey is most suited to this property type. However, over 12% of users requested a more thorough service, possibly revealing the age of the buildings. If the property you plan to buy is over 80-years of age or in poor condition, then you will need a RICS Level 3 Survey. The most popular property type amongst users requiring this more thorough survey was detached houses.
Do not underestimate the importance of organising a property survey. If defects or damage is uncovered, you will be in a much better position to negotiate the asking price. The results of the report may even convince you to walk away from the sale, due to the extreme costs of repair work possibly required.
Lambeth’s oldest building is the church of St Mary-at-Lambeth. Whilst it has been rebuilt a number of times, there are parts of the building that date as far back as pre-Norman times. This is just one example of the many interesting architectures Lambeth contains. In total, the borough has around 1,058 listed buildings and 2,000 statutory listed buildings, all preserving the history of the area. Lambeth also has 62 conservation areas, approximately covering 30% of the entire borough.
Lambeth is home to a variety of high-rise buildings, luxury developments and shared ownership opportunities. However, its period homes are often the most popular amongst movers. If you decide to purchase an older home, then it would be wise to consider organising a RICS Level 3 Survey to ensure a more thorough inspection.
A lot of the period properties in Lambeth were damaged or destroyed during the raids in World War 2, but there are a number of survivors that still stand today. The Lambeth Ragged School building is a great example, having been built in 1851 and still protected even today. For more modern homes, you’ll find luxurious developments in the Aykon London One tower block and shared ownership developments in Courtenay Street.

Subsidence can occur when there is a change to the condition of the ground beneath a property. This can lead to the foundations misaligning and the property possibly sinking. It can result in major structural damage and greatly devalue a house. It is a term dreaded by all homeowners.
Geobear’s map of subsidence in the UK portrays Lambeth as a subsidence hotspot like many other areas within Central London. Luckily, the location seems to be depicted as a medium risk area, but that doesn’t reduce the importance of organising a property survey. When viewing a property in Lambeth, lookout for signs of subsidence such as large cracks around windows and door frames. If you suspect the home has been affected by subsidence, it’s essential you arrange a RICS Level 3 Survey to assess the structure.
Subsidence is a serious concern and can not only devalue a property but also render it unsafe or uninhabitable if the worst should occur. A reliable property surveyor will be able to inspect the home and assess if there is any risk of subsidence, allowing you to make an informed decision in regards to completing the purchase.
Introduced to the UK in the 1840s, Japanese Knotweed is a highly destructive plant capable of growing up to 10cm per day. It is notoriously difficult to treat and having it professionally removed could cost upwards of £3,000. However, removing the plant yourself could cause further damage to the infested property or land.
Japanese Knotweed can force its way through drains, walls and even concrete, causing severe structural damage to UK properties. Central London is a highly affected area, with 94 reported cases in one of Lambeth’s postcodes alone.
This dangerous plant can devalue a home by up to 10% if its presence is found on the premises. Some mortgage lenders will even refuse a loan for any infested properties due to the plant’s destructive nature. Japanese Knotweed has an extremely strong root system that can disturb and damage a building’s foundations and walls.
Arranging a property survey prior to a house purchase is essential, especially when discovering evidence of Japanese Knotweed. Your surveyor will be able to highlight any signs of the plant and tell you if it’s present on the land surrounding the home.
