Top tips for a Stanmore Home Buyers Survey


Stanmore is a suburb of Harrow in northwest London. It developed considerably when the railway arrived in 1890 and the tube arrived in 1932.

The Abercorn Arms on the hill, the Crown in the later Church Road, and the Vine were licensed in 1803 and all three survive to this day. There are large detached houses still surviving from the late Victorian period and building continued into the 20th century and up to the 1st world war.

Housing resumed after the war and by 1935 building was in full spate to the west of Honeypot Lane; Pearswood Gardens and Anmersh Grove were lined with houses, a start had been made along Portland Crescent, and Langland Crescent, Streatfield Road, and other avenues had been planned and named. By 1938 the network of residential roads was almost complete.

In 1971 private building was still in progress in the central triangle and farther up the slope, and ranged from detached dwellings to terraced houses, often in a neo-Georgian style, and flats. It was also in progress along Old Church Lane, on the site of the former railway station and beyond the hospital.

Modern developments include the medium rise flat blocks in Stanmore Place and Letchworth Road.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Stanmore which are built close to the local water courses, including Temple Pond, in roads such as Boyle Avenue and Trenchard Close, 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 Stanmore may be affected by environmental constraints.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Douglas Close revealed that the property was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints. These included Sites of Special Scientific Interest - Bentley Priory.

Areas which have been designated as having environmental or historical importance may impose constraints on property or land developments or alterations.
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Stanmore.

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."

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.

Does a RICS surveyor perform asbestos testing?

The Survey is a visual assessment to help identify any potential issues. The surveyor will inspect the property and if they have any suspicions of subsidence they will recommend that you get an asbestos specialist into the property.

The asbestos specialist will review of all accessible areas of the property to assess for asbestos and provide details of areas asbestos is potentially affecting along with taking samples and confirming if the material is asbestos.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Stanmore and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards. All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory. At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
