Top tips for a North London Home Buyers Survey


North London's housing is particularly varied and often in the same neighbourhood. There's plenty of Georgian properties around Highgate and Hampstead, for example, but Bishops Avenue in Hampstead has very large, modern mansions.

There are some very large council estates such as Broadwater Farm in Tottenham (originally built in the brutalist style in the 1960s with tower blocks but now largely redeveloped) and there are many Victorian terrace streets, such as around Stroud Green Road in Finsbury Park.

Some areas are resisting further development (Mill Hill East in particular) whereas other areas seem to be being redeveloped all the time, such as King's Cross.

There are new build developments, however, in many different areas and lots of shared ownership choices. London Help to Buy allows people to get a 40% equity loan on a new build property with a maximum price of £600,00.

Properties in North London which are built near to water courses such as the Rivers Thames, Lea, Brent, Colne, and Pinn as well as the Dollis Brook, the Regent's Canal and the Grand Union Canal 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).
Properties in some areas of North London are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Wenlock Street, N1 7EX noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.
Properties in various parts of North London, including streets such as Wenlock Street and Shepherdess Walk, may well be affected by the Crossrail and HS2 schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.

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, if you're thinking of buying a property in North London, incredibly important.

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.

Don't release your survey report to anyone!

The survey report belongs to you and should be used to support you in the decision of whether to proceed with buying the property at the current asking price.

You should never release the full surveyor's report to the seller or the selling estate agent as it may contain information that could weaken your bargaining position. The best advice is to only release snippets from the report that you are discussing with the seller or are looking to negotiate on.
