Top tips for a Muswell Hill Home Buyers Survey


Muswell Hill is a North London suburb which has a village feel which expanded greatly between 1896 and 1913 when builder James Edmondson cleared the scattered estates and large Victorian mansions in spacious grounds, building a fine parade of shops and flats along Muswell Hill Broadway, and houses along Princes and Queens Avenues.

The area largely consists of Edwardian semi-detached and terrace houses and a few which were built in the 1920s and 1930s. There are pretty, early Victorian houses on Fortis Green, while Whitehall Lodge in Pages Lane is a large block of flats in the Art Deco style, and Birchwood Mansions in Fortis Green Road is a listed Arts & Crafts block.

There are some particularly large houses in Woodland Gardens, Woodland Rise and Onslow Gardens, the Ringwood Estate has large detached 1920s and 1930s houses and the Rookfield Estate has many Arts & Crafts-inspired houses. There are some ex-council houses in Everington Road east of Coldfall Wood which have been bought under the Right to Buy policy.

New build developments include 77 Muswell Hill, which has 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, penthouses and garden flats.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Muswell HIll area mainly centre on Queens Avenue, Fortis Green Road and Muswell Hill Broadway.
A recent Environmental Search indicated that a property on Passmore Gardens, Muswell Hill,London, N10 2PE, was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
Properties in some areas of Muswell Hill may be affected by surface water flooding.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in in Passmore Gardens, N10 2PE revealed that there was a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the dwelling.

Surface water flooding results from rainfall running over ground before entering a watercourse or river. If you are buying a property with a mortgage, when your main property searches are returned, they may advise that you get an additional Flood Risk Report (click to find out more).

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 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 and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Muswell Hill.

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 Muswell 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people are not entirely sure about the difference between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Muswell Hill you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects which might affect the property.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any issues which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.


This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend. You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.

Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is entirely for YOUR benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0207 112 5388 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
