Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the West Hampstead area mainly centre on the Finchley Road. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways are marked surrounding the Thameslink Line and affect streets such as West End Lane, Sumatra Road and Ravenshaw Street.
A recent Environmental Search has shown that properties in various parts of West Hampstead, including Nexus Court, Malvern Road, London, NW6 5AT, may well be affected by the Crossrail and HS2 schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Nexus Court, Malvern Road, London, NW6 5AT, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of 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.

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.

When should you order a survey?

The right time to book a survey is specific to each client’s situation.

Generally speaking, it is recommended to book your survey for around a week after your mortgage valuation takes place.

This way, if your lender is happy to proceed you are then on track and don’t have the stress of searching for a surveyor to attend your property at the last minute.

Inversely, if your mortgage lender comes back and declines your application after the valuation, you then have breathing space to cancel the survey without fear of incurring cancellation charges.

If it is the case that you have concerns in regards to the condition of the property (be it subsidence or damp etc.) and feel that it will impact on what you are prepared to offer or whether you are even willing to proceed with the purchase, you may decide to book it in before your mortgage valuation in order to minimise costs in an already expensive process.
