Investing in Hillingdon

A thriving business centre with excellent road and public transport links, the impending arrival of Crossrail should lead to greater regeneration and present good investment opportunities.
Hillingdon is a culturally diverse area with a large Indian and Pakistani population, popular with families and young people. Hillingdon is among the cheapest boroughs to live in London, making a great choice for young professionals hoping to get onto the property ladder, and for families on a budget. There’s a mix of properties including detached period homes, terraced houses, maisonettes and commuter-friendly flats and apartments.

A Schedule of Condition provides a clear benchmark against which the condition of a property can be assessed. In this way, the document can help mitigate future repairing obligations between residential or commercial landlords and tenants, or potential claims for damages between property owners.
Subsidence in a building most commonly occurs when the clay soil beneath the foundations dries up and shrinks. Often, the moisture extraction can be attributed to the roots of nearby trees, but leakage from underground pipes softening or washing away the soil under the foundations can also be to blame.
