Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

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 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.

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 Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Camden and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Camden which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Do your surveyors operate with time limits?

Unfortunately some surveyors in the industry do put time limits on how long they will inspect the property regardless of whether they properly finish the inspection or not.

This isn’t a challenge we encounter as our surveyors operate by staying on site as long as the inspection requires before leaving or if it really cannot be completed in one day, revisiting the next to ensure a full inspection is completed prior to submitting a report to a client.
