Raised levels of noise pollution from roads and railways in Islington are most often observed in the Holloway Road area 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 Islington area mainly centre around the main road – A104, Essex Road, impacting roads such as St Peter's Road and Packington Street.
When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or homebuyer report in the Kensal Green area, they will switch the lights on and off but not test the whole electrical system. If they suspect that there is an electrical problem, they will recommend that you consult a local electrical contractor.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you purchase a home in Islington using a mortgage your Mortgage Lender will require you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may assume this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Unfortunately the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Islington you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect particularly.
