Top tips for a Harrow Home Buyers Survey


Harrow is a suburban area in the northwest of the Greater London Area and has many streets of 1920s and 1930s semi-detached and detached three- and four-bedroom houses, some influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement, others in mock Tudor or Art Deco styles.

There are also Victorian terraces, such as in Vaughan Road, and modern town centre flats and large, detached Edwardian houses with spacious plots in private roads on the slopes of Harrow's hill, such as Mount Park Road and Julian Hill.

There are new build developments on the site of the old Kodak factory between Headstone Drive and Harrow View, where 985 homes are planned to be built, including 200 of which will be affordable. The old HMRC building on Lyon Road is set to be demolished to make way for new homes as well.

Properties in Harrow which are built in close proximity to the Wealdstone Brook, in streets like Masons Avenue and Forward Drive, 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Harrow, including streets such as Blenheim Road and Bladon Gardens, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
A recent Environmental Search has shown that Properties in various parts of Middlesex, including Eastcote Road, South Harrow, Middlesex, HA2 8LQ, may well be affected by the Crossrail and HS2 schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.

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 Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Harrow.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Harrow has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Does the RICS Building Survey provide a breakdown of costs?

A standard level 3 RICS Building Survey provides a visual inspection of an extensive list of possible defects. The survey also provides a summary of issues which may need remedial work with an indication of their severity.

The report does not usually include a breakdown of costs although this can be provided at an additional cost.

It is worth noting that a local builder would be able to provide costs of repair based on the surveyor’s itemised list of defects and would not charge to do so. Moreover when negotiating with a vendor, the vendor expects to be provided with a builder's quote rather than a RICS building surveyor’s quote as it more accurately reflects the actual money to be spent on repairs rather than an industry standard indication.
