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.

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 Edgware.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

My property is a period flat, do I need a building survey?

This is a commonly asked question and it depends on the property to be inspected.

For a homebuyers report the surveyor is inspecting the property itself and common parts. If the property is a first floor flat with a garden flat below and a top floor flat above, there really is very little merit in instructing a full building survey as the surveyor has limits to what he can comment on.

If however the property to be purchased is the garden flat, then the surveyor is likely to have access to the front and rear of the property so is able to complete a more thorough inspection and therefore able to provide a more detailed report. So a building survey would be possible.

Always provide the postcode so that you can get guidance on what survey best suit your property.
