Top tips for a Mill Hill Home Buyers Survey


Mill Hill remained relatively rural, even up to the 19th century and with the arrival of the railway. In the 20th century, the area became more developed, with various types of housing being built including a council estate, including flats, built at the foot of Bittacy Hill in the mid-1920s.

Housing increased most rapidly in the area that is now Mill Hill Broadway and the most popular housing type is the 3-bedroomed semi-detached home. There are new developments in the area such as Millbrook Park, which offers some shared ownership properties and some affordable properties.

Properties in Mill Hill which are built in close proximity to the Dollis Brook, such as in Abercorn Road, are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Getting a RICS home buyers survey if you're interested in buying a property in Mill Hill can be extremely worthwhile, particularly if the report gives you ammunition to negotiate the selling price down with the vendor.

In a recent RICS HomeBuyer Report on a property in Rivington Crescent, in the 'Overall Opinion' section of the report, the surveyor stated the following:

"The agreed price is at the top end of tolerances for a property of this size and type in this location. You could find it difficult to resell in the short term at the same price. It would be prudent to cost for any works recommended and attempt to re-negotiate to reflect anything that you may not have been aware of when making your original offer."
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads and railways in the Mill Hill area mainly centre around where the main line railway and the M1 run alongside each other, particularly also affecting streets such as Grahame Park Way and Tithe Walk.

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 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.

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 Mill Hill 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.

Does your surveyor check the chimney?

If you're buying a period property which features a chimney you will want to ensure there are no defects or issues with pointing that may cause you issues in the future.

Your RICS surveyor will assess the exterior of a chimney usually from ground level or a nearby vantage point/accessible flat roof to note any issues visible and advise accordingly.

Internally your surveyor will visually check for any signs of structural movement and that the flue is clear, however, this is only possible if accessible.

You should note, however, that surveyors are not structural engineers and so they may advise a further inspection is carried out by such a suitable specialist if suspicions of defects are noted.
