Situated only 24 miles north-west of London, Hemel Hempstead is a town perfect for commuters. Hemel however, also has a lot to offer in its own right and the new town centre contains many works by notable artists from the 1950s. The 32 hector Gadebridge Park is worth exploring and it houses gardens, a bowling green and – for the more adventurous – a skate park. Hemel Hempstead has undergone a string of redevelopments in recent years and the ‘Hemel Evolution’ project invested £30 million to improve the appearance of the town centre. All these developments contribute to the town’s attractiveness and as people in Hemel Hempstead feel ‘most at home’ in their property (according to a survey of 24,000 people) it is clearly a desirable place to live. Our users agree and in 2016 alone, reallymoving.com has helped over 500 people relocate to Hemel Hempstead.
Although Hemel Hempstead has undergone significant development since the 1950s, many Victorian houses remain in the old town and these are characteristically spar dash rendered. These houses are coated in stucco, a plaster like material, which was used to strengthen old Victorian properties and improve their appearance. If moisture gets trapped in the stucco coating it can cause the render to fail, leaving cracks or even falling away completely – which can be costly to repair. This is one reason that reallymoving.com highly recommends the services of our expert Chartered Surveyors as they will provide you with a Building Survey that will outline any damages your prospective property has suffered, so you can buy with confidence.
Our Chartered Surveyors are here to make your move to Hemel Hempstead as safe and straightforward as possible, so you will be able to move into your new property without any unforeseen delays.
