Buildings in Twickenham built close to the River Crane, the Duke of Northumberland's River and those on the banks of the River Thames, in streets such as Cole Park Road and Lancaster Place, have been 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).
Section F1 of the RICS HomeBuyer Report addresses a building's roof structure.


A recent HomeBuyer Report on a property in Natalie Mews in Twickenham, noted in section F1 that the property had a factory truss roof structure, the timbers of which appeared to be structurally sound and in satisfactory condition. The sarking felt was laid below roof coverings and appeared to be in satisfactory condition.
Some properties in Twickenham are located within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.


A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Amyand Park Road in Twickenham noted that the home was located within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines.


Wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual and auditory impact on the surrounding area.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are considering buying in Twickenham and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects. 

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Twickenham.
