Top tips for a Greenford Home Buyers Survey


Greenford's Parish Church of the Holy Cross was built in the 14th century and Betham House was built in 1780. The suburb was reasonably populated in the Victorian era and has many surviving properties from this period, but the siting in 1921 of the huge factory of tea blender and food manufacturer J Lyons was the cause of much additional housing development.

There are a plethora of housing styles, including Victorian, Edwardian and 1920s and 1930s semi-detached and terrace houses along the Greenford Road. There are also modern medium-rise flat blocks such as Wey House and Saltley House.

Very modern developments include Ealing Hill in Ruislip Road, consisting of modern purpose-built flat blocks. Pelham Place in Ruislip Road East is one example of where shared ownership can be available.

Many dwellings in the south of Gravesend which are near to or on the banks of the River Thames, such as in West Street and Royal Pier Road, 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).
A recent Regulated Local Authority Search for a property in Elton Avenue, Greenford, UB6 0PR, noted that the property was in an area that will be affected by the High Speed 2 (HS2) route.

More information about this can be accessed via theGovernment HS2 portal
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Currey Road, Greenford UB6 0BD noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

This finding did not necessarily mean that there was a cause for concern in terms of the property's stability: active subsidence depends on local conditions such as the proximity of trees. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Greenford.

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 Greenford 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 home buyers 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 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 Greenford.
