A RICS Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Isleworth, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

subsidence.png

Subsidence Inspection

The surveyor will look for signs of subsidence during the structural survey within the property paying special attention to signs of cracking internally and to the external walls. As a rule, if you can fit the width of a 50p into a crack in a wall, it could be a sign of subsidence. Our surveyors will flag in their reports if they feel you need to instruct a structural engineer to review a crack further.

Damp Testing

There are numerous reasons why a property can be affected by damp. The Surveyor will take samples in the property using a damp meter and assess the condition of the property to provide a report on whether they feel the property is affected by damp. Further investigations maybe suggested including getting a damp and timber specialist.

Identify Infestations

Woodworm, mice, rats and ants are infestations that your don't want in your home. Your surveyor will look for visible signs of mouse droppings, damage to floor boards (when visible) and damage to wiring, carpets or skirting boards

Asbestos

Prior to its banned use, asbestos was a commonly used building material, particularly as part of cement products, floor tiles and roofing shingles. Asbestos was used for its durability and resistance to heat and is commonly found in artex ceilings, garage roofing and chimney stacks. Your surveyor will confirm if they suspect any materials in the property have asbestos and if so, suggest getting an asbestos surveyor to intrusively taking samples of the asbestos to confirm the type. A damp meter is used in a HomeBuyers Report Isleworth survey and the readings included within the report.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems in your property in Isleworth, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Survey tips for properties in Isleworth


Isleworth hosts Osterley House, a fine Tudor home remodelled by the architect Robert Adam in the 1760s. Old Isleworth has period homes dating back to when the place was a village and a small port.

Much of Isleworth and Osterley was developed in the 1920s and 1930s when art deco factories were springing up along the Great West Road, so there are many semi-detached houses from the era. There are larger Victorian homes in Woodlands Road and Woodlands Grove and larger Victorian homes in Jersey Road and St Mary’s Gardens.

New developments include Campion House, a Victorian mansion turned into 17 flats and 61 new build houses of various sizes. The development has 9 affordable flats and 4 affordable houses.

Properties built close to the Duke of Northumberland's River and the River Thames in Isleworth, in streets such as Octavia Road and Church Street, are subject to flood alerts and warnings 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).

Some properties in Isleworth are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for wind farms or wind turbines.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Woodlands Road, Isleworth TW7 6NR, for example, flagged up that the property was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or turbines.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact.

Properties in some areas of Isleworth are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in The Grove, Isleworth, TW7 4JU noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.
London.pngMiddlesex 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.

Does the Building Survey include cost of repairs?

The Building Survey does not include an estimate cost of repairs however you can include this for an additional cost which will need to be agreed with the surveyor.

The surveyor will list the defects spotted at the property we would then recommend that you find a local Builder to attend the property to give you a free no obligation quote for the repair work. You can then use the cost of repairs from the Builder and the Survey report to help with your negotiations.
