Property in Lewisham

A relatively unassuming corner of South East London, Lewisham has experienced substantial redevelopment in recent years. There is now a much-improved restaurant & bar scene, better facilities and new homes that are attracting young renters, many of whom are deciding to buy here. According to estate agents Hamptons International, 44% of homes in Lewisham in the last year were bought by first time buyers.

With continued investment into the infrastructure of the local area, the housing market in Lewisham is rising. Last year, property prices were up by 6% on the previous year, and 20% up on 2016. The overall average property price here is £498,056 according to Rightmove, which is similar to nearby Hither Green. Most of last year’s property sales in Lewisham involved flats.

FAQs

Why is a Schedule of Condition a key document?

Whether you are planning building works, especially those falling under the Party Wall Act, or you are taking on a new tenant, a Schedule of Condition constitutes a clear benchmark against which the state of the property can be assessed. That way, future repairing obligations between landlords and tenants, and potential claims for damages by adjoining property owners can be mitigated.

What is crack monitoring?

If structural movement in a building is suspected, crack monitoring can be used to establish the extent of any movement. Typically, small metal studs are inserted either side of any cracks, and regular readings are taken to establish whether the cracks are widening or narrowing. Ongoing monitoring is normally undertaken for 3 months to a year.

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.
