Top tips for a Hampton Home Buyers Survey


Hampton has a rich variety of architecture which is only to be expected from an area that contains Hampton Court Palace, a magnificent building started in 1515. It has grand and decorative buildings including Garrick's house and the Temple to Shakespeare.

The most common type of housing in the north of the district is terraced homes; in the south is it semi-detached. The population of the area largely expanded from the mid-19th century but very much continued – and at greater rates – well into the 20th century meaning that there are many Victorian properties of various sizes as well as more familiar standard construction terraced, semi-detached and detached houses built in various periods of the 20th century. Notably, however, there are very few high-rise buildings.

There are also a number of new build developments in the area, some of which have been offered for sale under Help to Buy and Shared Ownership terms.

The Local Authority Search – the chief property conveyancing search – can be a goldmine for helping your conveyancing solicitor check out a property you're thinking of buying.

A recent search for a property in St James's Avenue, Hampton Hill, Hampton TW12 1HN revealed a plethora of information. The property is located within 200m of the Crossrail 2 scheme – which means possible disruption in the immediate term but an equally possible uplift in the property's value once completed.

In addition, there were local land charges listed such as a restriction on building basements – something which might put off certain buyers – and under the building regulations information listed, it is immediately clear that the appropriate records for double glazing (FENSA), heating installation (HETAS) and electricity installation (NICEIC) had been correctly filed with the local authority.
Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally equired to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in Buckingham Road, Hampton TW12 3JR. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
A recent Environmental Search report taken out for a property in Percy Road, Hampton TW12 2JX revealed that there was a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the property.

This level of risk is not normally likely to make insurance prohibitively expensive, however it's clear why lenders insist on gaining this kind of information when a potential buyer is considering purchasing a property in a particular area.

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 Hampton.

Does a surveyor report on signs of infestation?

A RICS surveyor will always highlight any signs or suspicions of infestations during their inspection of a property, whether this is the visible signs of droppings, jagged markings from insect tunnelling or burrowings.

The main culprits of infestation in property are rats and mice, woodworm and termites, dry/wet rot and Japanese Knotweed and surveyors will highlight signs of these to you over the phone or within their report and will always direct you to a specialist to ascertain the remedy for removal.
