Top tips for a Barnes Home Buyers Survey


Barnes is an affluent area of southwest London in Richmond Borough and has a village feel. It has a large number of 18th and 19th century buildings of various sizes in the streets around Barnes Pond. It hosts the village church of St Mary's, which is an original Norman chapel initially built between 1100 and 1150.

The Terrace is a road with very old riverside housing, containing Georgian mansions along the River Thames' west bend. The area between Lonsdale Road and Castlenau has a council estate built in the 1930s in roads such as Stillingfleet Road, Washington Road and Nowell Road. Castelnau itself also has early Victorian villas and Lonsdale Road has large Edwardian houses as well as Edwardian later and terrace houses. Hillersdon Road, Laurel Road and The Crescent have Regency style villas.

New build developments include Royal Swiss, 14 modern flats in Halcyon Close, Queen's Ride, and Hampton Row, a gated development of 12 flats and 9 houses on the corner of Priory Lane and Upper Richmond Road.

Survey Tip 3

Many properties in Barnes, particularly those built to the north of Barnes Station, in streets such as Lonsdale Road and Castlenau, are in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time and there is a smaller area, including streets such as Hillersdon Road and Meredyth Road, in which flood warnings are issued from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or homebuyer report in the Barnes area, they will switch the lights on and off but not test the whole electrical system. If they suspect that there is an electrical problem, they will recommend that you consult a local electrical contractor.

A local electrician near the Barnes area is TW Electric, Unit 138, 9 Jerdan Place, London SW6 1BE.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Barnes area mainly centre around the main road – Upper Richmond Road, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Rocks Ln A306.

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender. On top of which it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Barnes that you arrange your own Homebuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.
