Top tips for a New Southgate Home Buyers Survey


New Southgate is a suburb to the southeast of Barnet Borough in North London. It centres on what was the hamlet of Betstile, hence Betstyle Road and Betstyle Circus being names of streets in the area.

It developed from being a hamlet when the railway arrived in the form of the then Colney Hatch railway station. Betstyle Lodge appeared around this time; the Railway Hotel opened on Friern Barnet Road in 1856 and a gasworks was built to the south of the station in 1858.

Much good quality housing was built by 1867, i.e. the mid-to-late Victorian period, with its terrace houses, but there was a stigma attached to living in or near Colney Hatch because of its then lunatic asylum.

The North Circular Road was completed by 1929, bringing more house¬building in its wake. To replace houses damaged or destroyed in the war or just run down, municipal dwellings were built, starting with the construction of tower blocks in Highview Gardens in 1959 and further building of semi-detached and terrace housing and flats up to the mid-1970s.

The redevelopment of the Ladderswood Way estate is due to be completed by the end of 2017 and new build developments include the new houses and apartments in Montmorency Park off Telford Road.

Properties in New Southgate, built close to Pymmes Brook, in streets such as Wilmer Way and Ashridge Gardens, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
Properties in some areas of New Southgate may be affected by being built on or close to contaminated land or land which may be contaminated.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Sycamore Hill revealed that the property was within 500m of land which may be contaminated. The risk factors listed included London N10,Land at Friern Hospital, Former East Barnet Sewage Works Pinkham Way and Finchley Road Sewage Works Raer of Tesco Stores.

Suspected contaminated land may have many implications for a property built on or it and, if this is flagged up, the report sets down the next steps you should take.

Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in New Southgate.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Sycamore Hill, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "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."

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 is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in New Southgate.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in New Southgate has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Do I get aerial photos of my property as part of my survey?

Your surveyor will take photographs of your roof as part of your survey. These may form part of a Building Survey or may be referred to in a Homebuyer Report.

These photos are not aerial photos; they are normally taken from ground level and possibly from using a device which enables photos to be taken from an upper window.

The surveyor takes photos as part of their checking of the property for defects; they will inspect all accessible areas in order to do this, including the drains and the loft (if this is present and they can get to it).
