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 from 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.

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.
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.
