Top tips for a Brondesbury Home Buyers Survey


Brondesbury consists of wide tree-lined streets featuring Victorian terraced houses with and purpose-built flats in roads such as Cavendish Road, Christchurch Road, The Avenue, Chatsworth Road and Mowbray Road. Housing began to be built in earnest across Brondesbury in the late 1860s to 1890s, assisted by the development of railway services and the underground stations. Development continued apace in the 20th century and more than 200 council houses were built in the 1960s and 1970s of more or less standard construction (terraced houses and semi-detached properties). There are also a number of new build developments in the locale.

An Environmental Search conveyancing property search can flag up a number of environmental issues which might affect your enjoyment of a property you're thinking of buying.

A recent such search bought for a property in Belsize Road, South Hampstead NW6 4BR revealed that the property was within 2km of the HS2 rail development path and that there was a moderate risk of natural ground instability within 50 metres of the property. The HS2 rail development might cause noise and other pollution (although equally proximity to one of its stations is reasonably likely to cause an uplift in property values once it has been built) and ground instability might bring with it an increased risk of subsidence.
The Local Authority Search, the most important of the conveyancing property searches, can flag up land charges which affect a property you're looking to buy.

A recent such search bought for a property in Fairhazel Garden, NW6 3SJ revealed that the dwelling was subject to conditional planning consents, a tree preservation order, a smoke control order and was also in or near to a conservation area.
Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in Adelaide Road, London NW3 3QB. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.

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 involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property.

Choosing the right survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, to get is important however both a HomeBuyers Report and a Building Survey will identify any suspicions of the main defects discussed below.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property.

Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp
and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Brondesbury which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey.

The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem 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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Any number of people have been understandably confused between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Brondesbury you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects the property may have.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any defects which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.

This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend.

You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.


Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is squarely for your benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0207 112 5388 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
