Top tips for a Friern Barnet Home Buyers Survey


Friern Barnet is a suburban area in the London Borough of Barnet in North London. It was mainly rural until the 19th century, then the railway arrived (mid-19th century) and electric trams (1900s) which accelerated population growth and housing development.

Housing in the area is largely late Victorian and Edwardian properties with larger houses constructed from the early 20th century onwards and many semi-detached and terrace dwellings. Many of the larger properties have been converted into flats.

Princes Park Manor is a modern luxury redevelopment of the original Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum, which was originally built in 1850, and Friern Village, another luxury development next to Princes Park Manor, has been built on farmland originally associated with the asylum.

New build developments include 17 Station Road, which has luxury 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, and the detached houses in Chandos Avenue.

Properties in Friern Barnet which are built in close proximity to the Bounds Green Brook, including streets such as Atlas Lane, Larch Close and Silver Birch Close, are in an area which is subject to flood 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).
A recent Environmental Report for a property in Marshalls Close, London, N11 1TE stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area which has potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. 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. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
When a RICS surveyor is completing either a building survey or a homebuyer report 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 Friern Barnet area is Alston Electrical Services, 15 Calvert Rd, Barnet EN5 4HH.

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 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 Friern Barnet incredibly important.

Why does the surveyor need to be local

It is important to get a surveyor to attend the property who is local to your area.

A local surveyor will have extensive local knowledge of the area and will know if there are any issues that occur on properties locally. A local surveyor will also be aware of the market conditions in the area and it is more than likely that they have surveyed properties of a similar condition before.

It is also more efficient to work with a surveyor who is local to Friern Barnet or who is used to completing surveys in Greater London as driving for several hours to complete a survey can delay the report turnaround.
