Top tips for a Edgware Home Buyers Survey


Edgware's locale has a number of Victorian terraced houses but the area's main population expansion occurred in the 20th century, particularly from the 1930s to the 1960s, so most of the area's properties were built during this time and later, and are predominantly semi-detached properties.

There are a number of very modern shared ownership developments in the locale, such as Canons Row in Lacey Drive and Help to Buy developments such as in The Lanes in Edgware Green.

Properties in Edgware which are built in close proximity to Dean's Brook, such as in Brook Avenue and Farm Road, are 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).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Edgware area mainly centre around the M1, also affecting streets nearby such as Bellamy Close and Ellesmere Avenue, and of rail pollution along and adjoining the main railway line joining Mill Hill Broadway and Elstree & Borehamwood Stations affecting streets such as Hale Grove Gardens and Meridian Close.

The railway line and the M1 track each other closely in this area and noise pollution is likely to peak where they run alongside each other.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Edgware.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Brannigan Way, 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."

LondonMiddlesex is a county located in south east of England, however many parts of Middlesex are now commonly known as part of Greater London, with small sections in neighbouring counties.

Strictly speaking Middlesex as a concept is only kept in existence by many people continuing to name it as a county on postal addresses and other contributors such as Middlesex County Cricket Club, whose home ground is at Lord's in St John's Wood, just outside Central London. It is still loved despite it not having any form of administrative function etc.

People hearing about Middlesex assume it was/is a large county because of the amount of Greater London territory (West and North London and Westminster, with the Thames as its southern boundary) which lies within its borders. It is actually the second smallest county in the UK. Middlesex was established in the Anglo-Saxon system from the territory of the Middle Saxons. The largely low-lying county's soil is dominated by clay in its north and alluvium on gravel in its south.

Middlesex contains locations as diverse as Teddington (where the tidal Thames normally finishes), Enfield, Notting Hill, Ickenham, Ealing (where the famous film studios which produced so much early film comedy still exists), Hampstead and Southall.

The survey is non-intrusive. If you are thinking of buying a property in Edgware, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

Does the Building Survey include cost of repairs?

The Building Survey does not include an estimate cost of repairs however you can include this for an additional cost which will need to be agreed with the surveyor.

The surveyor will list the defects spotted at the property we would then recommend that you find a local Builder to attend the property to give you a free no obligation quote for the repair work. You can then use the cost of repairs from the Builder and the Survey report to help with your negotiations.
