Property in Croydon

Croydon in South London is set to become London’s biggest growth centre, on account of an ongoing £5.25 billion investment programme into the area. The London Borough of Croydon offers a unique mix of amenities for residents and businesses, making it a highly attractive option for investors from near and far.

Croydon is arguably the UK’s best-connected business hub, being only 15 minutes from Central London and Gatwick Airport. There’s a wealth of superior office space available, priced at a fraction of what it would cost to move further into the capital, with ambitious retail schemes planned and a skilled workforce located nearby.

Surrounded by the green Surrey countryside, there are nearly 30,000 homes planned for the Croydon area over the next 10 years including some of the country’s tallest residential towers. Take the 43-story pink and purple Saffron Tower for example, which is now a local landmark.

According to Rightmove, Woodcote Green is the most expensive local neighbourhood, with prime residential areas including Pine Coombe and Bishops Walk in the Shirley Hills as well as the Whitgift Estate and The Waldrons.

What’s the benefit of having a Schedule of Condition?

A Schedule of Condition is a way for landlords and tenants, or neighbouring property owners, to protect their respective property interests, by outlining and agreeing the condition of a property and any potential repair work that might be needed, at the outset of a lease or in advance of any building works.

Why are drone surveys so popular?

Drone technology has become increasingly recognised as a safe, convenient and cost-effective way to survey at height. Not only can a drone survey reach previously inaccessible areas such as rooftops and congested urban spaces with ease and without risk to personnel, the technology delivers high quality visual data in terms of close-up aerial photography and high definition video footage.

I can't say enough good things about Able - not just on the survey quality, but also on the excellent communication. They knew I was in a hurry, and they made sure they gave me the earliest possible slot (about a week after paying). On the day, the surveyor kindly called me and spent half an hour talking through what he found, to put my mind at ease. The next day, I got a summary of the survey. And a couple of days later, the full survey report. It was incredibly detailed, and answered all my questions. It also listed the costs of each repair. A few weeks later, and after the searches came back, I emailed Able with a list of questions. A couple of hours later, the surveyor personally called me and spent an hour going through each point step by step. At no point did I feel rushed, and he spent time reassuring me about each item I was worried about. All in all, dealing with Able was the best experience I have had in the home-buying process, and I would be delighted to use them again if I ever buy another place.

Jack did a great job for us and was available for any follow-up questions in a timely manner. We got a thorough and professional report at a much more reasonable cost than other firms. Thank you!

One of the best people you want to use when considering buying a property. Communication was second to none and the report provided was detailed and gave me the assurance I was looking for. Very reasonable price for a first time buyer.

I am happy with service they provided. I was in dark regarding a house that I am going to buy but they stepped in and shed some lights and gave me some insights about the condition of the property. They are resposive nd helpful. I am happy with their service and also I have to mention that their price was reasonable.

My second time using their services, this time with surveyor Jack. As always: professional report, prompt response with follow up call. Honest (refunded unnecessary part of the survey). Got returning customer discount. Absolutely nothing to complain. They are ABLE, as the name says.

I felt good because of the impeccable services i received. For keeping me in loop all the way is very professional even when you couldn't reach the agent. The report was very detailed and the attention to details was very impressive. The Initial report i first received was very commendable. Great job and keep it up.
