subsidence.png

Subsidence Inspection

The surveyor will look for signs of subsidence during the structural survey within the property paying special attention to signs of cracking internally and to the external walls. As a rule, if you can fit the width of a 50p into a crack in a wall, it could be a sign of subsidence. Our surveyors will flag in their reports if they feel you need to instruct a structural engineer to review a crack further.

Damp Testing

There are numerous reasons why a property can be affected by damp. The Surveyor will take samples in the property using a damp meter and assess the condition of the property to provide a report on whether they feel the property is affected by damp. Further investigations maybe suggested including getting a damp and timber specialist.

Asbestos

Prior to its banned use, asbestos was a commonly used building material, particularly as part of cement products, floor tiles and roofing shingles. Asbestos was used for its durability and resistance to heat and is commonly found in artex ceilings, garage roofing and chimney stacks. Your surveyor will confirm if they suspect any materials in the property have asbestos and if so, suggest getting an asbestos surveyor to intrusively taking samples of the asbestos to confirm the type. A damp meter is used in a HomeBuyers Report Stamford Hill survey and the readings included within the report.

Survey tips for properties in Stamford Hill


Stamford Hill is a district of North London mainly in Hackney Borough and partly in Haringey Borough. It lies on the old Roman road of Ermine Street. Development of the area began around 1800, and many prosperous dwellings were built around Stamford Hill over the next 100 years.

There are many Victorian properties such as the terraces in and around Church Street and the villas in Castlewood Road. There are Edwardian properties in Durley Road and Dunsford Place. There are many 1920s-1950s semi-detached properties. The Stamford Hill Estate was built in 1932 and consists of medium-rise apartment blocks.

Development has continued in the latter part of the 20th century and up to the present date. New build developments include the Skyline Apartments – a modern high-rise block – in Devan Grove.

Properties in Stamford Hill which are built in close proximity to the River Lea, including streets such as Lemsford Road and Riverside Close, are in an area which is 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 Stamford Hill may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Forburg Road revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Local Nature Reserves - SpringFiled Park.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

Properties in various parts of Stamford Hill, including streets such as Barbauld Road and Nevill Road, may well be affected by the Crossrail 2 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.
London.pngGreater 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.

Can I be present during my Building Survey?

As standard, surveyors do not allow clients on site with them for several reasons. Most importantly, surveyors have a third party liability insurance that covers them whilst they are on the property in the unlikely event of any damages, this does not extend to the client and as such the surveyor would be liable in the event of any damages to the property.

The other reason is that the surveyor is there to do a job and has a long list of defects to look out for which requires their full attention. The presence of the client will understandably cause distractions and may cause the surveyor to miss something, not only could this lead the client to seeking restitution, it would ultimately affect the quality of the survey the client had paid for.
