Top tips for a Acton Home Buyers Survey


Acton is a highly mixed area architecturally, with an abundance of Victorian terraced houses in the main central area and with brutalist 1960s tower blocks and slab blocks in the South Acton estate but red brick houses to its north.

A large area of East Acton’s housing was built as a council estate in the 1920s and consists of relatively standard construction semi-detached and terraced housing.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 2

Survey Tip 3

Acton soil types are loamy with North and East Acton areas having more clay in them. Clay is a factor in subsidence and is always a factor to consider when buying a property in London.
There are no flood warning or flood alert areas in the locale.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Properties built around the path of the A40 frequently experience high noise levels.

LondonMiddlesex is a county located in south east of England, however many parts of Middlesex are now commonly known as part of Greater London, with small sections in neighbouring counties.

Strictly speaking Middlesex as a concept is only kept in existence by many people continuing to name it as a county on postal addresses and other contributors such as Middlesex County Cricket Club, whose home ground is at Lord's in St John's Wood, just outside Central London. It is still loved despite it not having any form of administrative function etc.

People hearing about Middlesex assume it was/is a large county because of the amount of Greater London territory (West and North London and Westminster, with the Thames as its southern boundary) which lies within its borders. It is actually the second smallest county in the UK. Middlesex was established in the Anglo-Saxon system from the territory of the Middle Saxons. The largely low-lying county's soil is dominated by clay in its north and alluvium on gravel in its south.

Middlesex contains locations as diverse as Teddington (where the tidal Thames normally finishes), Enfield, Notting Hill, Ickenham, Ealing (where the famous film studios which produced so much early film comedy still exists), Hampstead and Southall.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey is non-intrusive.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Acton, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Acton has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are considering buying in Acton and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects. 

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Acton.
