Top tips for a Hanwell Home Buyers Survey


Hanwell is a town in West London which developed as a coaching stop for travellers heading further west. You can find pubs from the Victorian era there, such as The Fox, built in 1848. St Mary's Church was built in 1841.

Much of the housing there is Victorian and Edwardian-era, with some larger Georgian properties. Boston Road/Boston Manor Road has properties from the Victorian era up to the 1970s and mainly consists of semi-detached properties. 

There are some more modern developments including the council-built housing around Poets' Corner. There are also some purpose-built flats such as you find at the end of Shakespeare Avenue.

New developments include The Boatyard, along the Grand Union Canal, which offers shared ownership.

Dwellings built close by to the River Brent in Hanwell, such as in Half Acre 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).
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Hanwell, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as Economy Drainage Services, 13 Wyndham Road, London, W13 9TE.
Noise pollution from roads in Hanwell is at its highest along Hanwell Broadway/Uxbridge Road/A4020, affecting nearby streets such Westminster Road, Cherrington Road and Bentley Close.

Rail traffic noise levels are highest around the Great Western mainline railway which passes through Hanwell Station, affecting nearby streets such as Cambell Road and Alwyne Road.

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?

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in Hanwell.

Does the surveyor climb onto the roof of the property?

The surveyor carries with them a ladder that allows them access to areas above head height. Due to Health and Safety, a RICS surveyor is not allowed to go higher than 3 meters.

The surveyor will use powerful binoculars to inspect the roof of a property to see signs of damage to the roof, tiles, chimney, soffets and fascias.

Flat roofs can be inspected from opening a window in the property and looking out to view the same.

If there is a need for a closer inspection of the roof, then scaffolding will be required to be obtained to allow safe access to the roof. It is very rare for this type of survey to be completed during the purchase of a property.
