Home Buyer Survey - CoronaVirus

Top tips for a Kings Cross Home Buyers Survey


Kings Cross has been hugely transformed from what was once regarded as a 'down at heel' area. Some 20 new streets have been built recently and more than 2,000 homes in the area, mostly from reclaiming the semi-industrial/waste lands to the north of the old Kings Cross station.

Granary Square has fountains and restaurants and is a local hub, centred on the Victorian Granary Building and the Great Northern Hotel has been restored and reopened.

There is still a great mix of early Victorian houses between York Way, Caledonian Road and Pentonville as well as in the Lloyd Baker Estate south of Pentonville Road and east of King’s Cross Road.

Converted Victorian houses and tenement flats are found in the roads and squares south of Euston Road. You can also find estates of council houses - most notably the Priory Green Estate designed by Tecton, the mid-century firm led by Berthold Lubetkin — and converted warehouses.

Keystone Crescent has a charming curve of early Victorian houses.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in King's Cross are most to be found around the Euston Road and particularly around its junction with York Way and Grays Inn Road.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Kings Cross area mainly centre around the main road - A501, Euston Road, impacting roads such as Cresfield Street and Belgrove 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.

A local electrician near the Kings Cross area is Russell Heating Ltd, 18 Penton Rise, Clerkenwell, London WC1X 9ED.

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 non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Kings Cross.

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 the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Kings Cross has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

When should you order a survey?

The right time to book a survey is specific to each client’s situation. Generally speaking, it is recommended to book your survey for around a week after your mortgage valuation takes place. This way, if your lender is happy to proceed you are then on track and don’t have the stress of searching for a surveyor to attend your property at the last minute. Inversely, if your mortgage lender comes back and declines your application after the valuation, you then have breathing space to cancel the survey without fear of incurring cancellation charges.

If it is the case that you have concerns in regards to the condition of the property (be it subsidence or damp etc.) and feel that it will impact on what you are prepared to offer or whether you are even willing to proceed with the purchase, you may decide to book it in before your mortgage valuation in order to minimise costs in an already expensive process.
