Top tips for a Southall Home Buyers Survey


Southall is a large suburb in West London bordered by the Grand Union Canal to its east. Its Manor House in The Green dates back to at least 1587. The Grand Union Canal, built around 1796, caused a commercial boom as did the arrival of the railway in 1839, which encouraged further industrial development.

There are Victorian grand-fronted properties on the Uxbridge Road and Victorian semi-detached houses and terraces off King Street and off the main roads but housing stock is predominantly municipal, built firstly in the interwar period and then in the 1950s to the 1970s, not least to replace stock destroyed in the war. 

Most housing is 2-storey and semi-detached or terrace, but there are some medium-rise tower blocks.

There are new purpose built blocks in St Bernard's Gate and being built at Southall Waterside and some developments offer shared ownership.

Properties in Southall which are built in close proximity to the Grand Union Canal, including streets such as Bullsbrook Road and Springfield Road, are in an area which is 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).
Overhead lines and phone masts can be contentious and may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search stated that a property in Osterley Gardens, Chevy Road, Southall, Middlesex, UB2 4UW, was within 250m of overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Southall area mainly centre around the main road – A4020 Uxbridge Road, impacting roads and streets such as Oakwood Avenue and Milford Road.

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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Southall.

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 Southall 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. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to get a valuation for the property in Southall you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you but the results aren't always shared with you as the survey actually belongs to the lender. Furthermore, it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and a large number of buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Southall that you arrange your own HomeBuyers survey that reports on defects or potential issues a property has; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you having to pay out money for any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as rising damp can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not corrected.


The average cost for HomeBuyers for fixing works to their property after purchase is just under £2,000, and when some defects affect the resale value of your home, getting an independent HomeBuyers Survey makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise.
