Top tips for a North West London Home Buyers Survey


North West London's area which touches Central London is affluent and densely-packed in population terms. The district which includes St John's Wood and Primrose Hill has some gorgeous large Victorian and Georgian properties, ranging from terraced houses (such as the well-known Regent's Park Crescent with its colonnaded terraced houses) to larger detached houses.

Moving further out, for example on the Kilburn High Road and towards Brondesbury and Willesden Green, the main roads still retain many Victorian properties, however the back streets have been considerably redeveloped and sometimes many times. There are, for example, council estates built in the mid-20th century in South Kilburn, with units of relatively standard construction.

While Harlesden's suburb has kept much of its Victorian-era properties, Wembley and Harrow's centres have been redeveloped several times, with, for example, makeovers in Harrow occurring both in the 1970s and 1980s for example.

Further out and moving towards the Hertfordshire border, Stanmore is a relatively affluent area with larger Victorian properties surviving as well as modern large mansions built in the late 20th century and the present one. Pinner similarly has plenty of larger houses, many built in the 1930s.

New build developments have sprung up in many parts of the area, with some offering more affordable shared ownership and Help to Buy terms.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the St John's Wood area in North West London mainly centre on the roundabout which connects Wellington Road and Park Road. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways from the trains coming into and out of the Marylebone terminus mainly effect Paveley Street.
When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or homebuyer report in the Golders Green area of North West London, 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 Golders Green area is Tower Electrical Fire & Safety Ltd, 54 Middleway, London NW11 6SG.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Stanmore in North West London.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Douglas Close, 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 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.

Does a surveyor use a ladder during a survey?

Surveyors come equipped with an array of tools and devices in order for them to diagnose and report on any defects internally and externally affecting the property that the client is looking to purchase.

Usually when clients ask whether a surveyor comes equipped with a ladder there is normally concern with a roof or a noted issue with the roofing. If you do have a concern then make sure you highlight this to the surveyor prior to their inspection to ensure it’s specifically reported on.

Your surveyor can come with a three meter ladder to access flat roofs or gain access to advantage points to assess harder to reach areas in conjunction with utilising telescopic camera mounts to document areas which are defective.
