Top tips for a Holloway Home Buyers Survey


Holloway has some excellent Victorian houses and plenty of purpose-built modern flats to cater for the student population there. Pemberton Gardens in particular has large Victorian houses.

Holloway Prison, having closed, is set to be redeveloped into possibly as much as 5,000 new homes of various sizes. There are many large 3 and 4-story Victorian houses and many social housing estates. 

The Beaux Arts Building in Manor Gardens, built in the Beaux Arts architectural style, was converted into 162 flats two decades ago. Arsenal's old football stadium has been redeveloped into around 2,000 new homes with the stadium itself being given over to 650 modern flats.

Shared ownership resales in the area are often available from Newlon Housing Trust.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads and railways in Holloway are most often observed in the Holloway Road area between Tollington Way and Holloway Road tube station and particularly between the junctions between Seven Sisters Road and Tollington Road (for road) and around Holloway tube station/Holloway Road (for rail – this is where the overland railway crosses the Holloway Road).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Holloway area mainly centre around the main road – A1, Holloway Road, impacting roads such as Biddestone Road and Warltes Road.
Checking the gas boiler is something a RICS surveyor can do by turning on the hot water and the heating, however they are not gas engineers so cannot test the boiler. You should always obtain the boiler installation certificate and the maintenance details from the seller during the conveyancing process.

If you need the gas checking, a local gas engineer in Holloway is I.C. Boilers,they are based in London and cover the whole 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 RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Holloway.

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.

If your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Holloway which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are interested in buying in Holloway and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.

Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Holloway.
