Top tips for a Camden Home Buyers Survey


Camden boasts many properties from the Georgian and Victorian periods, particularly Victorian terraced houses and period conversions. Ivor Street is made up of relatively compact homes from these periods.

Additionally there are very modern flats, warehouse flats (for example those in Gilbey House by Regent's Canal) and council house estates.

New developments include Hawley Wharf (170 homes, 82 classed as 'affordable'), Euston Reach (in Carlow Street off Camden High Street) which is made up of studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom flats and XY apartments, which is the regeneration of the Maiden Lane Estate.

Camden Courtyards consists of shared ownership flats and The Ossulston Estate is a pioneering modernist council estate.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Noise pollution from road traffic in Camden is at its highest in the vicinity of the Camden High Street going south from Camden Town Underground Station.
Camden Building Surveyors do not test gas or electrics during their inspection, however they will flag if they feel these require further investigation due to a visual inspection and turning on and off appliances and lights.

AN example of what a surveyor might include regarding electrics is in a HomeBuyers Report on 160-164 Royal College Street, Camden, London NW1 0TA, our surveyor stated "The electrical main enters the property from the road and the meter is in an external box at the front of the house. Wiring has been run in PVC sheathed cables. There are miniature circuit breakers fitted to the consumer unit which is located in the hall. There are smoke alarms fitted but they were not tested."
The Building Surveyor will aim to identify where the water supply enters into the property and, where visible, inform you where the stop cock is.

London.pngGreater 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.

How long does it take to compile a survey report?

On the day of the inspection the surveyor will attend the property and complete your chosen survey; either a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey. Once they are back in the office the same evening they will give you a call to run through any major issues found during the inspection (some surveyors don't offer this service however with us this comes as standard).

The surveyor will then email the report to you five working days after the survey has taken place. If the surveyor feels the report is going to take him longer to type up due to the detail included then they’ll advise you of when the survey report will be made available.
