Top tips for a Lancaster Gate Home Buyers Survey


Lancaster Gate's housing mainly dates back to the mid-19th century. It consists of two long terraces of houses overlooking the park, with a wide gap between them opening onto a square containing a church. Further terraces back onto the pair overlooking the park and loop around the square. Until 1865 the terraces were known as Upper Hyde Park Gardens, with the name Lancaster Gate limited to the square surrounding the church.

The terraces are stuccoed and are in an eclectic classical style featuring English Baroque details and French touches. Lancaster Gate stands alongside Hyde Park Gardens as one of the two grandest of the 19th-century housing schemes lining the northern side of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.

The terraces overlooking the park were designed by Sancton Wood and those around the square by John Johnson. The exteriors are largely complete, with just a couple of 20th-century infills, but many of the interiors have been reconstructed behind the facades.

When thinking of buying a larger, older or non-standard construction property in Lancaster Gate, it's always worth getting a building survey Lancaster Gate, because the information in your in it can prove invaluable not only in the immediate term – if many defects are found you might negotiate down the asking price or even pull out – but also when you move in because the report can bring to your attention matters of essential maintenance: 'a stitch in time saves nine'.

For example a recent such survey for a property in Camden Road NW1 9HJ referred to the pressing need to investigate a plumbing leak below the property's side path, a blocked run-off gully to the patio, blocked and sagging gutters and rising dampness. All these details are also particularly useful for your conveyancing solicitors.
In the course of a RICS surveyor carrying out either a building survey or a homebuyer report on a property in Lancaster Gate, they might have suspicions that a property has an infestation. If so, they will advise that a qualified pest control company comes to the property to sort out the problem.

A local pest control company near the Lancaster Gate area is Pest Protect, 107, Communications House, 26 York St, Marylebone, London W1U 6PZ.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Lancaster Gate, 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.
