Buying in Kensington

Kensington is a popular and affluent area of Central and West London boasting a selection of attractive Victorian and Georgian terraced houses and nestled among some of the capital’s most affluent neighbourhoods including Notting Hill and Knightsbridge. Homes in Kensington are favoured by the super wealthy, though many areas attract a more diverse range of buyers.

Amenities in the area are vast and varied, ranging from two royal parks, plenty of upscale shopping opportunities and a vibrant nightlife. Connectivity is excellent, with 12 Underground Stations and easy links to Heathrow and London City Airports.

Launched in 2014, the Kensington & Chelsea Investment Project London is a private investment network for growth enterprises in West London. Its goal is to increase the vitality, diversity and employment potential of the economy, while pioneering productive private and local investment into the area.

Kensington has an overall average property price of £2,227,812, and most of last year’s sales were apartments (average price £1,716,075). The area is more expensive than Earls Court and cheaper than Campden Hill.

FAQs

Why is it essential to monitor cracks in walls?

Whether you suspect subsidence in your building’s foundations, or your neighbour is planning a basement conversion or building extension, movement monitoring can ascertain the extent of any structural movement and how to proceed. Able Surveyors produce easy-to-use monitoring reports with clear information about the potential causes of movement and suggested remedial work to be carried out.

What is the reason for carrying out a damp survey?

Buildings can be affected by moisture penetration caused by nearby trees and vegetation, blocked ventilation or roofing defects, leading to damp issues. Ignoring the problem can have serious long-term consequences for the structural integrity of the building and the health of those living within. If you suspect damp in a building and you are its owner, prospective purchaser, management company or building contractor, please contact Able Surveyors for expert advice and to carry out a professional Damp Report.

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.
