Buying in Brent

There are extensive regeneration plans underway in the London Borough of Brent, one of the most culturally diverse areas in the UK capital and one that is becoming increasingly popular with families and working professionals. With great diversity of living, eating, socialising and shopping facility across a range of cultures, the area makes for a highly tenantable buy-to-let purchase.

Brent has great public transport links – underground, overground and rail services – and road links via the North Circular which connects traffic directly with the M1 in the north and M4 in the southwest. A vast new transport super hub plans for two new railway stations which is expected to boost property prices significantly, so early market entry is advised.

According to Zoopla, house prices in Brent stand at an average of £519,367, 14% up on 2016. Most property transactions last year involved flats. Queens Park is the most desirable residential area in the borough, the least expensive being Stonebridge Park.

FAQs

Is a RICS HomeBuyer Report worth having?

Many homebuyers don’t bother with a survey, having concluded after a quick glance at the building with an untrained eye that everything looks fine. Unfortunately, serious defects such as damp, timber defect, subsidence and more are not always obvious but can be eyewateringly expensive to fix. A RICS HomeBuyer Report is a professional, independent survey that can mitigate the risk.

Why do I need a Schedule of Condition?

A Schedule of Condition is a ‘snapshot picture’ that records the condition of the property. Used at the start of a new lease, or when an existing lease is assigned to a new tenant, it is a valuable document to protect both landlords and tenants in the event of future dilapidation claims when the lease expires. Schedules of Condition can be drawn up for residential or commercial buildings.

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.
