Bexleyheath surveyors must possess knowledge of local area issues and the connection they have with the home and its value. House prices are generally higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them being unspoilt.

Surveyors will note whether the property is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of the RICS Level 2 Survey will suggest further investigations are carried out by your conveyancer. Unapproved modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.
