Top tips for a Brentford Home Buyers Survey


Brentford's housing mostly consists of properties from the 19th and 20th centuries and has seen substantial redevelopment of its original industrial area south of the A4/M4 and of its waterfronts, namely Brentford Dock and Brentford Marina.

You can find Victorian terrace properties along the Great West Road, modern tower blocks along Green Dragon Lane, 1930s-era council estates such as the Clayponds (many properties here have been sold under Right to Buy) which mainly consists of low-rise duplex blocks and new build developments, particularly around Brentford Dock, which are mainly low-rise purpose-built flats.

New developments are constantly going up in the Green Dragon Lane area with some affordable housing provision and there are also housing associations around that area, some of which offer Help to Buy.

Properties the south of Brentford built next to the River Brent and next to the River Thames, such as in Brent Way and Augustus Close, are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time.

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).
Wind energy is one of several alternative energy sources; however, location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search for a property in Kew Bridge Road, Brentford, London, TW8 0RF stated that the dwelling was within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Kew Bridge Road, Brentford, London, TW8 0RF, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with potential for natural ground instability.

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural ground instability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

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.

Can I get my survey money back if the property falls through?

If the property falls through and you have already had a survey done on the property then the surveyor has already completed the work and there will be no refund.

Alternatively, what you can do is speak to the estate agent and offer for these to be purchased by their new buyer. Some sellers are receptive to this as it’ll speed up the process for future buyers, however not all sellers will agree.

It can be an annoying time when a property purchase falls through, so we will always look to work with you on your next property purchase to try and keep the next survey cost as low as possible.
