Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Harlesden


Harlesden is an area of northwest London in Brent Borough. Properties are mainly mainly Victorian and Edwardian terraces, purpose-built flats, and there are Twenties houses close to Roundwood Park. You can find 3-bedroom semi-detached 1930s houses in Tokyngton/Monks Park.

New developments include flat developments in medium-rise blocks in Craven Park which are being sold under shared ownership terms.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads and railways in the Harlesden area mainly centre around the junction of Harrow Road, the High Street and Scrubs Lane.

A recent Environmental Search for a property in Holland Road, London, NW10 5AY, stated that the dwelling was within 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.

Any areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry must be licensed by the Department for Energy and Climate Change. Such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.
asbestos-purple.png
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Holland Road, Harlesden, London, NW10 5AY, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with 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.
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.

How long does my survey inspection take?

The only definitive answer that can be given is ‘as long as the surveyor needs to complete a thorough inspection of all relevant areas of the property'.

Naturally, each property varies in scope and will have its own individual features that need to be commented upon – you wouldn’t expect a modern 2 bed flat to take the same amount of time as a 7 bed, Victorian manor house!

Many surveyors might, for example, take 2 hours or so doing an inspection but you cannot specifically predict this for any particular property.
