Investing in Chelsea Property

Chelsea is one of the most popular upscale residential areas in Central London, boasting enviable historic period architecture, great shopping and a number of excellent schools. The demand for property in Chelsea has always been robust, both among discerning clients looking for family residences in the area, and among professional developers looking for development opportunities.

Highly desirable residential areas include the handsome redbrick houses of the Cadogan Estate, the Thomas Cubitt stucco fronted houses in Eaton Square, part of the Belgravia Estate, and the mansions in Cheyne Place.

According to Rightmove figures, Chelsea has an overall average property price of £2,282,951, 5% up from 2014 prices. The majority of sales during last year were apartments, with an average price tag of £1,710,256.

Why would you need a damp report?

Damp reports can be commissioned by property owners, purchasers, management companies or building contractors for buildings where signs of damp have been detected, and further investigation is needed. The cause of damp can usually be attributed to trees and vegetation near buildings, blocked ventilation, or roof and guttering defects leading to moisture penetration. Left untreated, this can have serious long-term consequences on the structural integrity of the building and on the health of its occupants. Please contact Able Surveyors if you suspect damp in your property.

How do you monitor structural movement?

Are you concerned about potential movement in building foundations as a result of your adjoining neighbour’s planned basement conversion or building extension? Have you noticed existing cracks in your walls, or perhaps doors or windows not closing properly, making you suspect subsidence? Able Surveyors can offer ongoing crack monitoring and reporting over several months to establish a clear record of what is occurring, identify the potential causes of movement, and recommend the appropriate remedial action.

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.

I felt good because of the impeccable services i received. For keeping me in loop all the way is very professional even when you couldn't reach the agent. The report was very detailed and the attention to details was very impressive. The Initial report i first received was very commendable. Great job and keep it up.
