Top tips for a Cricklewood Home Buyers Survey


Cricklewood has a mix of Victorian, Edwardian (for example in Blenheim Gardens) and 1930s houses, with a few new-build flats. You find large Victorian houses in Fordwych Road, large 1930s detached and semi-detached houses in Gladstone Road and the Hocroft Estate.

You can find modern townhouses in Elsinore Gardens and modern flat blocks in Dairyman Close. Ranulf Road has large detached interwar period houses. 

New build developments include Claremont Village in Claremont Road (flats and houses) and Kidderpore Green, where there has been renovation of original Arts & Crafts period houses.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in Cricklewood are at their highest in Cricklewood Broadway and the streets immediately adjoining it. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways are at their highest around Cricklewood Station and the streets adjoining it.
Some properties in Cricklewood are located nearby to areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry – they must be licensed by the Oil and Gas Authority – and such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Lichfield Road, Cricklewood, London NW2 2RE for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Cricklewood.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Elm Grove, Cricklewood, NW2 3AE, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a homebuyers survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Cricklewood incredibly important.

How long do I have to wait for my survey?

When you instruct Sam Conveyancing to complete a survey on a property you will receive an email from us stating all the information that you need to know about your survey.

Once our surveyor has completed the survey at the property they will call you when they are back in their office between 4pm-6pm on the same the day to inform you if they found any defects at the property.

The surveyor will then type up the report and email it directly to you 5 working days later. However, If following the survey the surveyor feels the report is going to take longer to produce than the normal time frame, due to the amount of detail required, then they’ll advise you of when the survey report will be made available to you.
