Top tips for a Notting Hill Gate Home Buyers Survey


For much of the 20th century Notting Hill Gate and the wider Notting Hill area's large houses were subdivided into multi-occupancy rentals. Then known for slum housing, in the early 21st century, after decades of gentrification, the whole area has a reputation for being affluent and fashionable, with attractive terraces of large Victorian townhouses and high-end shopping and restaurants (particularly around Westbourne Grove and Clarendon Cross).

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 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 Cheesemans Terrace, London W14 9XA. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
A recent Environmental Search report bought for a property in Cheesemans Terrace W14 9XA in the Notting Hill Gate area revealed that the property a client was looking to buy was at a potential risk of surface water flooding within 250m of the property and also that there was a risk of flooding within the same distance again from rivers and sea. These findings are important for considering overall flood risks when you're considering buying a property and your solicitor can frame further enquiries if necessary and you can also assess the potential impact on your buildings insurance premiums.
A Building Survey is the gold standard of defect surveys if you are looking to buy a home and is particularly suited to non-standard construction, and/or large and/or older dwellings.

To illustrate the depth it can go to, in a recent such survey bought for a property in Montpelier Street, West Brompton, London SW7 1HD the surveyor noted that, regarding the gutters, downpipes and valleys, a metal scotia was fitted (a scotia is a decorative moulding used to cover a gap without removing the skirting) and that although it would prevent the majority of the runoff from the gutters, the surveyor recommended that it be removed to allow the runoff to flow over the edge of the roof as a more efficient arrangement.

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 is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a homebuyers survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Notting Hill Gate incredibly important.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Does your surveyor check your electrics?

Your RICS surveyor will switch lights in a room on and off to see if the electrical supply is connected while carrying out their inspection for your RICS Home Buyers Survey.

However, they won't carry out any in-depth inspection of the electrical supply or check the wiring for example: this is beyond their scope of work.

Their primary focus is on detecting signs and suspicions of major property defects such as subsidence and rising damp.

That said, invariably they can recommend a trusted local electrical tradesperson if you ask them to.
