Areas covered – London and the Home Counties

Putney

Located immediately south of Putney Bridge and within walking distance of our office on New Kings Road we are dealing with several residential party wall matters. Despite its label of being the most polluted High Street in London; Putney is an “evergreen” property location with houses and flats of appeal to youngsters, families and commuters.

Fulham

This south west London suburb has been the firm’s base for 25 years. Our first office was in Parsons Green, we then moved to Fulham Broadway and 10 years later to Fulham Palace Road. Our current offices in New Kings Road are the fourth and became necessary due to our expanding workforce.

Kensington

Probably the most “in demand” location in London, we have undertaken countless building surveys of flats and houses, some very simple and others more elaborate, the trend shows no sign of let up and we anticipate this borough remaining the most popular amongst the wealthier of our clientele.

Chelsea

Recently we did a building survey in a popular garden square where the property had the most up-to-date technical specification the firm has ever seen. Every element of the house could be controlled from a tablet and there was as much of it located below ground level as above.

Westminster

Westminster is not only home to the mother of all parliaments but it is proving more and more popular with people who wish to be close to the centre of London whilst retaining an ability to escape the city with reasonable ease. Many offices have been converted to upmarket apartments and more are in the process of re-development.
We have recently undertaken a snagging schedule for buyers providing a list of minor defects overlooked by the developer, otherwise to the annoyance of the purchaser.

Hammersmith

Surely one of the most dependable locations along with Shepherds Bush, a complete set of transport choices and housing of every shape and form. We are looking forward to seeing the finished product of the re-development of Riverside Studios; the flats will be spectacular and there will be a new theatre to visit.

Chiswick

The home of Fuller’s Brewery, finishing point of the Boat Race and former home of William Hogarth, Chiswick has several sub-locations such as Strand-on the-Green, Bedford Park, Grove Park, and Turnham Green. We have surveyed or valued property in each of these locations and understand the subtleties surrounding values. Currently we are dealing with several party wall matters in the borough one of which has involved a property on Chiswick Mall where we were surprised to learn the houses actually own the road and pavement at the front.

Wandsworth

The absence of an underground service is made up for by a frequent east/west overground line. The river frontage has been almost fully redeveloped very mainly by the larger companies as high rise residential blocks.
The common is surrounded by mainly late Victorian Houses, some more modern infill, not to forget HMP Wandsworth. The Tonsleys is a popular area with young families and “downsizers.” We undertake much of our work in this area.

Wimbledon

The large attractive houses surrounding Wimbledon Village are probably somewhat undervalued but in reality many are a fair way from the station. Recent valuation jobs have revealed little increase over the past 3 years. Perhaps it is time to buy and benefit from the price stagnation. Simon Price opened his first office in South Wimbledon in 1987 close to Old Merton Park and still has loyal clients in the area.

Battersea

Otherwise known as South Chelsea and recently rated highly by The Times for downsizers who want to remain in touch with the West End. The proposed Northern Line extension will dramatically improve the commuter’s lot. We have recently been involved in a one off development of a new home where 9 adjoining owners had to be notified under the Party Wall etc. Act and multiple awards ensued.

Richmond

Richmond is close enough to be accessible to Central London in minutes by rail yet far enough away to have a character and charm of its own. We recently prepared survey reports for 2 independent clients on properties on Richmond Hill while enjoying the celebrated views west over Petersham Meadows and Marble Hill Park.
