Top tips for a Middlesex Home Buyers Survey


Middlesex, although no longer an administrative county, has a proud history and is still frequently used in postal addresses. It encompasses a large part of the west and north of Greater London and the River Thames is its southern boundary.

It contains Uxbridge as one of its western extremes, which, like most of the county, has a great variety of property types. There's still Georgian and Victorian frontages in the High Street but also the unique Hillingdon Civic Centre, built in the 1970s, with its extensive brick and tile architecture.

Middlesex contains Teddington, with its locks and Victorian terraces and Enfield, where the world's first cash ATM was installed. It includes Finsbury Park, with its wonderful Victorian park and facilities and Mayfair, with its myriad of stratospherically priced period properties.

New developments are commonplace, particularly the further west and north you go.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Properties in the Middlesex area (a postal district of sorts, the county itself has not existed for a number of years) which are built close to large water courses such as the Rivers Thames, Pinn, Brent, Lea, Colne and the Grand Union Canal among others, 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Middlesex, including some parts of Uxbridge, Ruislip and Pinner, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1 – 3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Levels of noise pollution from road traffic within the boundaries of the old county of Middlesex tend to be at their highest along the routes of the M1, M4 and M40. Levels of noise pollution from railways are at their highest along the routes of the main railway arteries which connect to the large central London terminuses of Paddington, Euston, St Pancras and King's Cross.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

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 Middlesex, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

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 Middlesex 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.

Can a RICS surveyor comment on the removal of a load bearing wall?

If the seller has removed a wall, or you are planning to remove a wall in the property then a RICS surveyor cannot definitively confirm if the wall is or is not load bearing because their inspection is only visual. The surveyor may give their opinion, however it will come with a caveat that you should obtain an intrusive assessment to confirm.

Before the removal of a load bearing wall, you should always instruct a local structural engineer in Middlesex to provide their definitive opinion on if the wall is or is not a load bearing wall.
