Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Osterley


Osterley is an affluent district of Isleworth parish in Hounslow Borough in West London. Most of its land is the large ancestral private estate of Osterley Park (one of the largest open spaces in west London) and its mansion. The Sultan of Brunei lives there in a very large residence.

Properties are a great mix of styles. There are detached houses from various periods such as the Georgian Old Farmhouse in Osterley Park or the Victorian properties in St Marys Crescent or the Edwardian as well as very modern properties in The Grove. There are large semi-detached properties in Burlington Road and Lingwood Gardens, particularly from the Edwardian period and the 1930s and conversion flats in Eversley Crescent and modern apartments in Oakley Close.

New build developments include the many modern apartments in London Square and London Road.

Properties in Osterley which are built in close proximity to the River Brent, in streets such as Transport Avenue, are an in area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time.

A recent Environmental Search stated that a property on Woodlands Road in Osterley, TW7 6NR, is within 50m of an area which has the 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.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Osterley area mainly centre around the main road – Great West Road, affecting some roads nearby such as Thornbury Avenue and St Mary's Crescent.
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.

When should you book your survey?

A survey from booking to getting your report should normally take around 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year (busy periods are July, August and December).

The best advice is to instruct your surveyor at the same time as you instruct your solicitor. The reason being is that your solicitor tells you of any legal reason to not buy the property and the surveyor will look to tell you if their is any visual reason to stop buying or to renegotiate the selling price.
