Top tips for a Highbury Home Buyers Survey


Highbury is a district of North London in Islington Borough.

By 1794 Highbury consisted of Highbury House and Highbury Hill House, Highbury Barn and the gated terraces of Highbury Terrace and Highbury Place. Until the 1870s many large Italianate villas were built, mostly in the southern part of Highbury.

After that, development went high-density with close packed mostly terraced houses being built, mainly in the north of Highbury. Available land continued to be in-filled with more housing until 1918, but little else changed until after World War II.

After the war, much municipal housing was built, particularly of semi-detached and terrace dwellings and low to mid-rise blocks. There are some grand villas remaining, but many of these have been converted into smaller flats by developers.

Arsenal's old football stadium has been converted into a luxury housing complex consisting of apartment blocks called Highbury Square.

New build developments include the apartments in Highbury Grove, the semi-detached houses ad modern terrace housing in Melody Lane.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Highbury area mainly centre around Highbury roundabout and the main roads linking from it: St Paul's Road, Canonbury Road and Highbury Corner/Holloway Road. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways accompany the overland service going through Highbury & Islington Station, which is located next to the aforesaid roundabout, making the roundabout the main area of noise in the locale.
A recent Environmental Report stated that a property on Aberdeen Road, London, N5 2UH, was 50m from 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.
Properties in some areas of Highbury may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Loxford Gardens, Highbury, N5 1FX revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

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 Highbury 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.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Highbury's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
