Survey Tip 3

When thinking of buying a property in Chalk Farm, it's always worth getting a home buyers survey Chalk Farm; the information in your defect survey 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'.

A recent such Home Buyers Report 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 Chalk Farm.
The Local Authority Search Report reveals a plethora of planning-related entries which a property you're thinking of buying in Chalk Farm might be subject to and also any entries which the local authority has regarding planning permissions sought and building control matters filed for the property in question.

An example regards a recent report bought for a property in the Chalk Farm locale in Belsize Park Gardens, NW3 4JJ which revealed that the property was in an area subject to restrictions on developing basements, smoke control orders and also revealed that the correct FENSA certificate had been obtained for an installation of double glazed windows.
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 in the Chalk Farm area 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.

What is the difference between the Building Survey and the HomeBuyers Report?

There are two types of survey, the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey.

The Building survey is essential for larger or older properties that have had any structural alterations from their original build whereas the HomeBuyers Report is suitable for properties of standard construction and properties that are under 70 years old.

Both Surveys cover the same aspects they are just go into different depths within their report.

The Building Survey is the highest visual assessment you can get and goes into a through structural investigation into the construction and fabric of the property, this is a very detailed report and comes with explanations and photos (if the surveyor provides photos in their reports - some don't) and the HomeBuyers report gives a good general review of the property to help identify any defect however this is formatted in a traffic light format, red highlighting any major issues, amber less so and green everything is fine.
