Peter Barry’s team of RICS regulated surveyors work from our offices in Brent Street, Hendon NW4 and are available to provide party wall advice or arrange a survey on any home in the North West London area.

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 sets out a framework within which surveyors can be appointed by owners to settle disputes relating to proposed work which has the potential to cause damage to adjoining properties.

If you are in the process of buying a home, whether your property search centres on Cricklewood, Hendon or West Hampstead, Peter Barry’s team of surveyors are on hand to give you peace of mind and the confidence to proceed with your most important purchase.

It’s hard to believe that the majority of buyers still exchange contracts on the strength of a 20 minute inspection which is not even undertaken on their behalf. The sole purpose of the lender’s valuation is to check that the property provides adequate security for the sum that they are lending.You therefore need to arrange your own detailed survey to ensure that you have a good understanding of what you are buying.

With property prices in North West London still increasing year-on-year with an average rise of more than five per cent between April 2012 and April 2013 and average property prices in the area exceeding £1.4 million, it is more important than ever that North West London homebuyers have all the relevant information they need to complete a sale.

London’s North West Area

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

North West London is perfectly positioned between Central London and the Hertfordshire countryside. Residents can enjoy all the opportunities of living on the doorstep of a vibrant city complemented by the advantages of a rural retreat and excellent transport links to the Midlands and north.

Despite substantial urbanisation of North West London after the second world war, many of the former villages and towns which became absorbed by the expanding capital have retained much of their original charm and identity.

Today North West London is a diverse part of the city which can equally be categorised as middle-class and affluent.

The area has some of the most sought after residential addresses and a culture spanning all socio-economic groups, explaining why the NW postcode is experiencing one of the fastest growth rates in London.

London’s north west has a population of 1.8 million and is made up of the boroughs of Hillingdon, Harrow, Ealing, Camden, Brent and Barnet.

North West London is the perfect leisure destination and includes canals, villages, stunning views and lots of green space as well as restaurants, shops and sporting venues.

Partly because if its rapid post-war expansion, this is one of the few districts in London where Underground tube links are poor and car ownership is commonplace.

Thankfully, the NW postcode area falls outside the Central London Congestion Charging Zone but if commuting into the city, the Underground may still be your quickest way to work, with the district served by the Piccadilly, Central, Metropolitan and Bakerloo lines.

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.
