Top tips for a Hillingdon Home Buyers Survey


Hillingdon expanded when the Metropolitan Line to Uxbridge was built around 1908. It has some older properties, particularly going towards Ickenham and in Sweetcroft Lane, Long Lane and Blossom Way, where there are a number of large detached houses, although many of these have been redeveloped or modernised.

A large number of the properties were built in the 1930s and are semi-detached and terrace houses, such as can be found around Windsor Avenue, Ryefield Avenue and Grosvenor Crescent. The council built a number of houses in the 1950s around The Larches and there were further developments around the north of Long Lane (to the right) around roads like Radnor Grove in the 1970s.

There are shared ownership developments going towards Hayes (Ryder Court) and new build developments going towards Ickenham.

Properties in Hillingdon which have been built close to the Yeading Brook, in roads such as Lyndhurst Crescent, 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 Enviromental Search has shown that a property in Hillingdon, Copthall Road West, Ickenham, Middlesex, UB10 8HT may well be affected by the Crossrail and HS2 schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Copthall Road West, Ickenham, Middlesex, UB10 8HT, 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.

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

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 Hillingdon.

I’m buying a new build property, what survey do I need?

If you are purchasing a new build property in Hillingdon you will need to have a snagging survey carried out by a RICS surveyor. This is an independent inspection looking specifically for faults in new build properties such as sealant in showers, cracked tiles and many other areas.

A snagging survey is designed to find out if there are any immediate problems with your new-build home. The surveyor will provide a report to the buyer with a listing of the areas within the new property whereby sub-standard workmanship exists and good practice has not been used and poor finishing’s are evident.

The snagging report can be provided to the developer and you can negotiate to get the works completed prior or after you complete your purchase - who is going to repair the snags should however be agreed prior to completion.
