Top tips for a Hampstead Home Buyers Survey


Hampstead or Hamptead Village has some of the most expensive housing in London and contains the large hilly expanse of parkland called Hampstead Heath.

It originally started to expand with the arrival of the North London Railway in the 1860s and many large Victorian detached homes were created in the 1870s and 1880s which still survive today, in the area of Frognal & Fitzjohns.

The 20th century saw much development including Hampstead tube station (1907), the Isokon building (1932), Hillfield Court (1932) and the Royal Free Hospital (mid-1970s). There are many traditional pubs.

Hampstead Garden Suburb has many Arts & Crafts-inspired (from the 1920s and 1930s) big detached and semi-detached houses, cottage style terraces and some blocks of flats. Many of the large detached 1930s houses built around Winnington Road, Ingram Avenue and Wildwood Road have been knocked down and rebuilt as bigger mansions. 

Waterlow Court off Hampstead Way is an arcaded courtyard development of 1-bedroom flats built in the Arts & Crafts style and you can find Art Deco houses, many semi-detached, in Hutchings Walk and Ossulton Way.

Survey Tip 3

Raised levels of noise pollution from cars in Hampstead mainly occur around the main thoroughfare of Heath Street and Haverstock Hill.
A RICS surveyor doesn't test the boiler, however they do check to see if the boiler is on by using the hot water and by turning on the shower. You should always obtain the boiler installation certificate and the maintenance details from the seller during the conveyancing process.

If you need the gas checking, a local gas engineer in Hampstead is Gas Elec Safety Systems Limited, 95 Haverstock Hill, Belsize Park, London NW3 4RL.
In section G1 of the HomeBuyer Report, the surveyor makes comment about the Electrics.

The surveyor is not qualified to test the electrics which is why the report states "Safety warning: The Electrical Safety Council recommends that you should get a registered electrician to check the property and its electrical fittings at least every 10 years, or on change of occupancy. All electrical installation work undertaken after 1 January 2005 should have appropriate certification. For more advice contact the Electrical Safety Council".

If you need an electrician to test your electrics you might contact Greenstone Electrical Ltd, 83 S Hill Park Gardens, Hampstead, London NW3 2SS.

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 Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Hampstead 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 they find any issues during the inspection, our surveyor will flag them up in the HomeBuyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them.

If you are concerned about woodworm, or any other defects with the property in Hampstead you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

Do I have to be present at my survey?

Your RICS surveyor will not normally allow clients to be on site whilst they are inspecting a property.

Firstly, their indemnity insurance only covers themselves, not clients, if any damage was caused to the property during the course of their inspection.

Additionally, as you might expect, they need to concentrate fully on the job at hand and the presence of a client might interrupt their concentration, potentially causing a serious defect to be missed.

Our surveyors always call you post inspection to run through any areas of concern and if you have noticed any areas that look to have a problem we can let your surveyor know about this in advance and they will be sure to pay attention to the matter and note their findings in their report.
