Top tips for a Wembley Home Buyers Survey


Wembley, a suburb of northwest London, is very famous for its stadium complex, which includes Wembley Arena, a fine Art Deco building.

There are many properties here that were built in the 1930s such as the detached, semi-detached and terrace houses on the Barn Hill Estate and the Paddocks and Monks Park. More modest housing is found to the west of the stadium.

There are many flats in the area, whether conversion or purpose built, such as in Norton Road and Fulton Road. Much of the area is being redeveloped and up to 5,000 new homes are planned. The Chalk Hill Estate has been completely redesigned, consigning to history its 1960s brutalist original look.

New build developments include Wembley Park Gate in Olympic Way (2 and 3-bedroom flatsw) and Wembley Park – 5,000 new homes as referred to above – and Emerald Gardens (1, 2 and 3-bedroom flats).

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Wembley which are built in close proximity to the Wealdstone Brook and the River Brent, in streets like Waterside Close and Quainton Street, 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).
A recent Environmental Search for a property on Best House, Matthews Close, Wembley, HA9 8FE, stated that the property was 4km of a well used for energy exploration or extraction.

Any areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry must be licensed by the Department for Energy and Climate Change. Such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.
A recent Environmental Search for a property on Matthews Close, Wembley, HA9 8FE, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. 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. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Wembley and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Wembley then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property has any other defects then you MUST get a RICS Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

How do I arrange access?

On instruction, we take a few key details from you, one of which being the details of the estate agent managing the property. We then organise access with the estate agent and determine whether they hold keys to the property or if the property is accessed via the owner (vendor). We then let the estate agent know the surveyor's intended arrival time and finalise the survey date.

In the event that the property is accessed through the vendor, gaining access can be tricky. Often the vendor will have to find time away from work/private life in order to accommodate the survey which can lead to having to revise the date of survey. Often in worst case scenarios (i.e. the vendor being on holiday), the vendor can leave their keys with the estate agents or a neighbour who are then the port of call to arrange access.
