Property Surveys and Party Wall Advice in North London

From our base in Winchmore Hill, N21 our team of RICS regulated surveyors are ideally situated to provide advice on party wall matters or arrange a property survey on any home in the North London area.

If you or a neighbour is proposing to carry out work on a property which falls under the scope of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 our team of experienced party wall surveyors are here to guide you through the procedures.

We can serve the necessary notice(s) on your behalf and should you need to appoint a surveyor to settle a dispute we will be happy to provide a competitive quote. We are equally at home acting for building owners, adjoining owners or as agreed surveyor.

Despite advice to the contrary from consumer magazine ‘Which?’ and the Council of Mortgage Lenders many buyers still rely solely on the lender’s valuation. It is important to realise that the lender’s valuation is not a survey and is only designed to check that the property is worth at least the amount that is being loaned. To ensure that you know exactly what you are taking on you should ask a Chartered Surveyor to prepare one of the two types of detailed survey available.

If you are in the process of buying a home, whether your property search centres on fashionable inner-city Islington or Crouch End’s more sedate village life, Peter Barry’s surveyors are on hand to give you peace of mind and the confidence to proceed with your most important purchase.

London’s Northern Area

Our offices in Winchmore Hill are ideally situated in the heart of North London, meaning our surveyors are perfectly placed to inspect your potential new home, giving you the detail you need to proceed.

North London’s cosmopolitan air sets it apart from the rest of the capital and its character and thriving multicultural environment are giving it a reputation as a highly sought-after residential destination.

With much of the district currently being redeveloped and renovated, North London’s appeal is increasing almost as fast as its population, which is expected to swell by a further 160,000 by 2016.

The current population of 1.4 million is larger than many UK cities, with a diverse range of areas and properties to choose from.

While North London may not have the best shopping and leisure facilities in the capital, it has plenty to offer in the way of eating out, open spaces (including Hampstead Heath) and sporting venues.

Public transport remains the easiest and quickest way to travel around the district as road links tend to be heavily congested with commuter traffic.

London Underground contains 27 stations on the Piccadilly, Northern, Victoria and Central lines and there are 40 mainline stations in North London on the Great Northern WAGN and the West Anglia lines.

With property prices in North London still increasing, with a rise of around 0.6 per cent between April 2013 and April 2010 and average property prices in the area comparatively affordable for London at around £500,000, it is more important than ever that North London homebuyers have all the relevant information they need to complete a sale.

Once you have pinpointed your perfect property in the right area of London for you, the team at Peter Barry Surveys are there to help you with that important next step.

If you would like further information on any of the above services do not hesitate to contact us on 020 8360 7615, by email or at 946 Green Lanes, Winchmore Hill, London N21 2AD.
