Property in Barnet

Barnet is one of London’s largest boroughs and it’s well connected to Central London via two Underground lines and a railway station. It’s a short drive from the M25 and M1 and 20 minutes from the North Circular at Finchley.

In addition to great transport links, competitive property prices and easy access to the Hertfordshire countryside have made Barnet a popular place to buy property. Housing ranges from period homes around Chipping Barnet to modern mansions in Hadley Wood and Arkley. Brookmans Park, Cuffley and Essendon are other local property hotspots. Hampstead Garden Suburb is a prime residential location.

Major regeneration projects are planned for the Dollis Valley area of Chipping Barnet, while Grahame Park in Colindale has recently been completed. Barnet’s average property price lies around £633,780 (Rightmove), 7% up in 2016 and more expensive than nearby Enfield but cheaper than Islington. Most property sales in Barnet last year involved flats.

Services Offered

Are you considering a property purchase in Barnet? Able Surveyors’ capable team of RICS Chartered Surveyors is at your service to assist with a wealth of in-depth building-related advice and services to enable you to make an informed, intelligent decision.

We offer the full suite of RICS property surveys – HomeBuyer ReportBuilding Survey – and can guide you through the entire process, from choosing the best survey for your needs to explaining our report findings in detail. Where necessary, we can carry out additional investigations through a Drone Survey or Specific Defects Report to check for damp, timber decay or other potentially serious issues, or monitor the building for movement. For our commercial clients, we provide Stock Condition Surveys and full property management.


How can a RICS HomeBuyer Report save money?

With the average bill for unexpected repairs for new homeowners standing at around £5,750, a RICS HomeBuyer Report can mitigate the risk. Providing ample information regarding the condition and structure of the property you’re about to make a huge financial commitment to, it enables you to decide to go ahead at the agreed price, renegotiate or walk away from the transaction altogether.

What is a matrimonial property valuation?

In the event of a separation or divorce, all assets will need to be divided fairly between the parties. A formal property valuation carried out by an independent, RICS certified expert will help to protect the interests of both parties and limit the scope for dispute. It is useful to jointly appoint a surveyor or valuer prior to any legal proceedings taking place.

I can't say enough good things about Able - not just on the survey quality, but also on the excellent communication. They knew I was in a hurry, and they made sure they gave me the earliest possible slot (about a week after paying). On the day, the surveyor kindly called me and spent half an hour talking through what he found, to put my mind at ease. The next day, I got a summary of the survey. And a couple of days later, the full survey report. It was incredibly detailed, and answered all my questions. It also listed the costs of each repair. A few weeks later, and after the searches came back, I emailed Able with a list of questions. A couple of hours later, the surveyor personally called me and spent an hour going through each point step by step. At no point did I feel rushed, and he spent time reassuring me about each item I was worried about. All in all, dealing with Able was the best experience I have had in the home-buying process, and I would be delighted to use them again if I ever buy another place.

Jack did a great job for us and was available for any follow-up questions in a timely manner. We got a thorough and professional report at a much more reasonable cost than other firms. Thank you!

One of the best people you want to use when considering buying a property. Communication was second to none and the report provided was detailed and gave me the assurance I was looking for. Very reasonable price for a first time buyer.

I am happy with service they provided. I was in dark regarding a house that I am going to buy but they stepped in and shed some lights and gave me some insights about the condition of the property. They are resposive nd helpful. I am happy with their service and also I have to mention that their price was reasonable.

My second time using their services, this time with surveyor Jack. As always: professional report, prompt response with follow up call. Honest (refunded unnecessary part of the survey). Got returning customer discount. Absolutely nothing to complain. They are ABLE, as the name says.
