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.

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 RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Lancaster Gate.

Should any issues be flagged up in the HomeBuyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Lancaster Gate and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

How long does the survey take?

The time necessary to carry out a survey is relative to each property.

Naturally a 6 bed, old Victorian property will take longer to survey than a newly built 1 bed flat as there’s more ground to cover and more defects to look out for.

A conservative estimate of around 2 hours can be used as a rough guideline, however the surveyor will spend as much time in the property as necessary in order to make sure all present defects are commented on.

The building surveyor must spend an appropriate amount of time at the property so that they can provide the complete scope of work set out by the RICS for the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey.
