Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Hoxton


Hoxton is a district of East London, bordering the City of London.

In the 1860s Hoxton Square became home to the Augustinian Priory, church and school of St Monica built by Pugin, between 1864-66.

Hoxton has Victorian-and-later warehouses, a few streets of Georgian and Victorian terraces, such as in Buttesland Street and Chart Street, modern flats in new developments, and around Pitfield Street many estates of social housing.

Interspersed among the converted warehouses and the estates of social housing are a few streets of Georgian and Victorian terraces.

The southern half of the district has many conversions of industrial units, most originally built in various eras of the 20th century.

The northern half of the district is more residential than the south and contains many council housing estates and new-build private residences.

New build developments include Banyan Wharf, which has 1, 2 and 3-bedroom homes in Wenlock Road, and Canaletto, a 31-story tower offering 190 studio, 1, 2 and 3-bedroom flats.

When a RICS surveyor is completing either a building survey or a homebuyer report in Hoxton, they will switch the lights on and off but not otherwise investigate the electrical supply and fittings for problems. If they feel like there is an electrical issue, they will recommend a local electrical contractor for you to consult.

A local electrician within the Hoxton area is Islington Electricians, 5 Barnsbury Park, London N1 1HQ.

When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or a homebuyer report on a property in Hoxton, they may have suspicions that a property has an infestation. If so, they will advise that a qualified pest control company comes to the property to sort out the problem.

A local pest control company within the Hoxton area is LPC Pest Control Services, Kinloch St, London N7 7LJ.
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.

When should you book in your property defect survey?

It is recommended that you book in your property survey, be it a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, around the same time you book in your mortgage valuation.

Booking the inspection to coincide with a few days after you get the decision on your mortgage (the offer) keeps you on track with the process.

Additionally it allows you time to cancel your survey in the unfortunate event of the lender declining your mortgage.

In the event that you are a cash purchaser, it is recommended to have your survey carried out as soon as you can within the process as this will be a deciding factor as to whether you proceed with buying the property or not.
