Top tips for a St John's Wood Home Buyers Survey


St John's Wood, an area just to the north west of London's centre, developed largely from the 1840s and hosts Lord's Cricket Ground, built in 1811.

It has a mix of Regency houses, early Victorian terraces and semi-detached villas, large detached houses as well as blocks of portered flats, for example Imperial Court in Prince Albert Road, and council property.

There are modernist flats and duplexes in the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate, often referred to as Rowley Way, at the northern end of Abbey Road.

New builds include St Edmund’s Terrace close to Primrose Hill. which is a development of 37 one, two, three and four flats.

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 happens if your surveyor finds signs of damp?

If your RICS surveyor flags issues with damp during your defect survey then your next course of action is to contact a damp specialist.

The damp surveyor will inspect internal and external walls and floorboards for visible signs of moisture using something called a moisture meter. F

inally the surveyor will take a sample of the porous material by drilling into the wall, to see how damp it is.

If you are carrying out the damp survey as part of your due diligence before you buy the property, it is reasonable to ask the seller to cover the costs in your negotiations as the damp will have been worsening during the current owner's tenancy.
