Top tips for a Queensbury Home Buyers Survey


Queensbury is a locality in northwest London, partly in the boroughs of Harrow and Brent. It did not exist as an area until its tube station opened in 1934. 

The parade of shops and houses built along with the station form a large crescent with a public green space in the centre. 

The area was developed in the 1930s and the architecture reflects this, particularly in terms of most properties being semi-detached and terrace.

New build developments in the area include the modern flats in North West Village.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Many people mistakenly think a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave home buyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the vendor.

The lender's surveyor conducts a mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are interested in buying in Queensbury and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey itemises defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender.

You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and it gives you the evidence potentially to share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Queensbury.
