Top tips for a Central London Home Buyers Survey


Central London has incredibly diverse properties, ranging from Buckingham Palace, originally built in 1703 as Buckingham House but considerably modified and enlarged since then, to Albany Street, a council estate consisting of densely packed low, medium and high-rise blocks built on bomb sites left after the Second World War.

Despite suffering extensive bomb damage in the Second World War, most of the splendid properties built in the Georgian and Victorian eras are still standing, including Park Crescent, which consists of wonderful Georgian terraced houses built with Doric columns.

Properties in Chelsea, a well-known area of Central London, built in close proximity to the River Thames such as Cheyne Walk and Royal Hospital Road have been subject to flood warnings and alerts 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 is completing either a building survey or a homebuyer report in Hoxton, an area of Central London, they will switch the lights on and off but not otherwise investigate the electrical supply and fittings for problems. If they feel like there is an electrical issue, they will recommend a local electrical contractor for you to consult.

A local electrician within the Hoxton area is Islington Electricians, 5 Barnsbury Park, London N1 1HQ.
Bayswater, in Central London, is located near to Little Venice. Properties in various parts of Bayswater within 2km of the proposed rail development may well be affected by the HS2 scheme.

The High-Speed Rail 2 is a proposed railway line between London and the North of England. Trains along this route will operate at speeds of up to 250mph. Areas in close proximity to the route are likely to have an impact on the surrounding properties.

When purchasing a property within the area in proximity to HS2 scheme you may want to consider where you are buying a house.

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 identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Central London.

If the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Central London then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect 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.

Does your surveyor check the chimney?

If you're buying a period property which features a chimney you will want to ensure there are no defects or issues with pointing that may cause you issues in the future.

Your RICS surveyor will assess the exterior of a chimney usually from ground level or a nearby vantage point/accessible flat roof to note any issues visible and advise accordingly.

Internally your surveyor will visually check for any signs of structural movement and that the flue is clear, however, this is only possible if accessible.

You should note, however, that surveyors are not structural engineers and so they may advise a further inspection is carried out by such a suitable specialist if suspicions of defects are noted.
