Top tips for a Kentish Town Home Buyers Survey


Kentish Town's architecture is predominantly from the Victorian era although there are some beautiful examples of other eras, such as the St Pancras municipal baths, opened in 1903 and built just into the Edwardian era. The Assembly House pub is a Grade II listed public house built in 1898.

There are, however, fairly large numbers of standard construction houses built in the 20th century in various decades and also some municipal estates, such as the art deco-style Peckwater Estate, built in the 1920s/1930s. There are also some fairly modern housing areas and some new build developments.

When thinking of buying a property in Kentish Town, it's always worth getting a home buyers survey Kentish Town; the information in your defect survey can prove invaluable not only in the immediate term – if many defects are found you might negotiate down the asking price or even pull out – but also when you move in because the report can bring to your attention matters of essential maintenance: 'a stitch in time saves nine'.

A recent such Home Buyers Report for a property in Camden Road NW1 9HJ referred to the pressing need to investigate a plumbing leak below the property's side path, a blocked run-off gully to the patio, blocked and sagging gutters and rising dampness. All these details are also particularly useful for your conveyancing solicitors Kentish Town.
Some properties in Kentish Town's area might be affected by the future building of the HS2/High Speed 2 Rail Link.

A recent Environmental Search carried out for a property in Brecknock Road, N19 5BG, revealed that the property was built within 2km of the proposed HS2 rail development.

Being located close to the route is likely to have an impact on living at the property.

If you're buying a flat in a block, getting a Local Authority Search can prove invaluable from the perspective of checking planning permissions and building control information which has been registered.

A recent such search bought for a property in Highgate Hill, N19 5NA revealed numerous of both of these matters in its information, ranging from the installation of air-condition extractor fans on various floors to recladding the whole building to installing new windows and a projecting balcony.

Your conveyancing solicitors Kentish Town when they receive the leasehold pack from the freeholder, examines the accounts and things like major works – this search can help them to check whether alterations have been correctly applied for and carried out and whether a proper account has been made.

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.

Do I have to be present at my survey?

Your RICS surveyor will not normally allow clients to be on site whilst they are inspecting a property.

Firstly, their indemnity insurance only covers themselves, not clients, if any damage was caused to the property during the course of their inspection.

Additionally, as you might expect, they need to concentrate fully on the job at hand and the presence of a client might interrupt their concentration, potentially causing a serious defect to be missed.

Our surveyors always call you post inspection to run through any areas of concern and if you have noticed any areas that look to have a problem we can let your surveyor know about this in advance and they will be sure to pay attention to the matter and note their findings in their report.
