Top tips for a Bayswater Home Buyers Survey


Bayswater's streets and garden squares are lined with Victorian stucco terraces, mostly now subdivided into flats and boarding houses. Properties in the area range from apartments to small studio flats. There are also purpose-built apartment blocks dating from the inter-war period as well as more recent developments, and a large council estate, the 650-flat Hallfield Estate, designed by Sir Denys Lasdun and now largely sold off via the Right to Buy scheme.

Survey Tip 1

A recent Environmental Conveyancing Search Report, bought for a property in the Bayswater area, specifically in Morshead Mansions, Morshead Road W9 1LG, revealed that the dwelling had among other things possible issues with:
  • ground stability – potentially within 50m of the property; and
  • HS2's proposed route being within 2km
Both these matters might affect a buyer's enjoyment of a property and at the very least can usefully trigger your conveyancing solicitor to make further enquiries so you know much more about what you're thinking of buying.
As a parishioner you can actually face a claim from your local parish church for chancel repair, which is where the local church, due to ancient statutes, can claim on parishioners to share the costs of making repairs or refurbishments to the church chancel/church roof and where these occur, they can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in the Bayswater area, specifically in Walterton Road W9 3PH. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million. One other approach is to get a Chancel Search, which reveals if the property you're looking to buy is in a parish where your local church can make such a legitimate claim on you.
The most important of the conveyancing property searches is the Local Authority Search and a recent report bought by a prospective purchaser of a property in Macroom Road W9 3HY revealed one of the reasons for this importance.

The report detailed both the planning permissions and building control regulations history and showed that planning permission had been given for a loft conversion and this work was also signed off according to building regulations. Additionally, there were FENSA records held regarding the installation of a total of 3 double-glazed windows.

These facts are of material importance not only because of the reassurance they can provide a potential buyer but also, if records are absent yet a property has been altered, they can trigger your conveyancing solicitor making further enquiries to find out more information about what the actual status is, which might for example lead to you either bargaining for a reduction in the selling price or even pulling out entirely.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in Bayswater.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Bayswater has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of your property in Bayswater which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost.
