Top tips for a St John's Wood Home Buyers Survey


St John's Wood, an area just to the north west of London's centre, developed largely from the 1840s and hosts Lord's Cricket Ground, built in 1811.

It has a mix of Regency houses, early Victorian terraces and semi-detached villas, large detached houses as well as blocks of portered flats, for example Imperial Court in Prince Albert Road, and council property.

There are modernist flats and duplexes in the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate, often referred to as Rowley Way, at the northern end of Abbey Road.

New builds include St Edmund’s Terrace close to Primrose Hill. which is a development of 37 one, two, three and four flats.

When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or homebuyer report in the St John's Wood area, 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.

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?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in St John's Wood, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure is non-intrusive.

Focus and limitations of the HomeBuyer Report

The HomeBuyer Report service is specifically designed for lay people that want a professional opinion at an economic price for the property they are buying. It is, therefore, necessarily less comprehensive than a level 3 building survey.

The focus of the surveyor is on assessing the general condition of the main elements of the property you are buying, and identifying and evaluating the particular features that affect its present value and may affect its future resale. The Building Surveyor's inspection is not exhaustive, and no tests are undertaken. There is, therefore, a risk that certain defects may not be found that would have been uncovered if testing and/or a more substantial inspection had been undertaken. This is a risk that the client must accept.

However, where there is ‘a trail of suspicion’ the surveyor ‘must take reasonable steps to follow the trail’. These ‘reasonable steps’ may include recommending further investigation.
