Top tips for a Barnsbury Home Buyers Survey


Barnsbury was mainly a rural area until the 19th century, then wealthy people from the City of London moved out to the area and many large Victorian houses were built. Pentonville Prison was built there in 1842 on the Caledonian Road and this also created employment and further building.

There are medium-rise blocks of flats built in the interwar period largely, making up the Barnsbury Estate, with blocks such as Corbet House, Molton House and Jocelin House.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads and railways in Barnsbury centre on the point on the Caledonian Road where the overland railway crosses it, near Caledonian Road and Barnsbury Railway Station.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Barnsbury area mainly centre around the main road – A5203 and Caledonian, impacting roads such as Stanmore Street and Carnousite Drive.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Barnsbury, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as 1st Call Drain Clearance, Level 1 Devonshire House One, Mayfair Pl, London W1J 8AJ.

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 RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

Should any issues be flagged up in the HomeBuyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Barnsbury and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to get a valuation for the property in Barnsbury you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you but the results aren't always shared with you as the survey actually belongs to the lender. Furthermore, it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and a large number of buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Barnsbury that you arrange your own HomeBuyers survey that reports on defects or potential issues a property has; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you having to pay out money for any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as rising damp can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not corrected.


The average cost for HomeBuyers for fixing works to their property after purchase is just under £2,000, and when some defects affect the resale value of your home, getting an independent HomeBuyers Survey makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Barnsbury.
