Investing in Clerkenwell Property

A vibrant central neighbourhood with a village-y feel, sandwiched between the West End and the City of London, Clerkenwell has attracted the young and upwardly mobile, creative types and established demographics for several decades.

Property in this historic pocket of London is a mixture of Victorian and Georgian houses and warehouse conversions, along with the odd post-war council block. New developments are available too, especially towards City Road and Shoreditch.

Clerkenwell has enviable public transport links including Farringdon, Angel and Kings Cross stations, and the advent of Crossrail is set to benefit Farringdon especially.

Clerkenwell property has an average price of £753,007, according to Rightmove’s latest figures.

What does ‘RICS accredited’ mean?

RICS is the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, one of the leading professional property bodies in the world and a powerful industry regulator with a strict code of conduct. Graduate surveyors undergo a minimum of 2 years’ formal training and an extensive final examination before they are RICS accredited ‘Chartered’ Surveyors. You will be working with highly skilled professionals who adhere to the highest possible professional standards.

Which type of property is a RICS Building Survey best for?

While a RICS Building Survey can be carried out for any home, the level of detail is specifically designed to benefit buildings that are very large or very old (including listed buildings), where non-standard building methods or materials have been used, the structure has unusual period features, the original building has been substantially altered (or you are planning to alter), or there are obvious serious building defects such as damp or timber decay.

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.
