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.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey 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.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Twickenham.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

How do I arrange access?

On instruction, we take a few key details from you, one of which being the details of the estate agent managing the property. We then organise access with the estate agent and determine whether they hold keys to the property or if the property is accessed via the owner (vendor). We then let the estate agent know the surveyor's intended arrival time and finalise the survey date.

In the event that the property is accessed through the vendor, gaining access can be tricky. Often the vendor will have to find time away from work/private life in order to accommodate the survey which can lead to having to revise the date of survey. Often in worst case scenarios (i.e. the vendor being on holiday), the vendor can leave their keys with the estate agents or a neighbour who are then the port of call to arrange access.
