Top tips for a Holland Park Home Buyers Survey


Holland Park's district was rural until the 19th century, and most of the area now referred to by the name Holland Park was formerly the grounds of a Jacobean mansion called Holland House. The area is principally composed of tree-lined streets with large Victorian townhouses. The street of Holland Park is formed from three linked roads constructed between 1860 and 1880 in projects of master builders William and Francis Radford, who were contracted to build and built over 200 houses in the area. Notable nineteenth-century residential developments in the area include the Royal Crescent and Aubrey House.

A recent Environmental Search report bought for a property in Cheesemans Terrace W14 9XA in the Holland Park area revealed that the property a client was looking to buy was at a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the property and also that there was a risk of flooding within the same distance again from rivers and sea. These findings are important for considering overall flood risks when you're considering buying a property and your solicitor can frame further enquiries if necessary and you can also assess the potential impact on your buildings insurance premiums.
Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required 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 Cheesemans Terrace, Holland Park, London W14 9XA. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
Buying a Local Authority Search is an excellent way for you and your conveyancing solicitor to find out about what planning permission applications and building control sign-offs have been lodged with the relevant local authority. Such a search, bought by a prospective client for a property in Caxton Road, London W12 8AJ, revealed that planning permission had been sought for an additional floor extension, a rear extension, a roof terrace, a broadband cabinet and double gates. Building control sign-off had been obtained for the removal of a load bearing wall and a Fensa certificate lodged for the installation of 4 double-glazed windows.

These details are particularly useful if you or your surveyor think there's an anomaly which necessitates further enquiries from your solicitor which might ultimately end in you bargaining for a reduction in the selling price or even pulling out of a purchase.

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, if you're thinking of buying a property in Holland Park, incredibly important.

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.
