Top tips for a Uxbridge Home Buyers Survey


Uxbridge mainly consists of houses which were built around the 1930s, whether detached, semi-detached or bungalows as well as a few streets with Victorian period semi-detached and terrace houses around The Greenway.

You find period houses in its outskirts, such as the borders of Ickenham, and 'chocolate-box'-type houses around Denham Village. 

There are plenty of newer developments, such as Old Mill Close in Cowley, which offers new build houses, and King's Island, near the town centre, where there are converted houses and new build flats. 

Frequently, shared ownership properties are available to buy in the locale.

In Uxbridge, homes built close to the Frays River, the River Pinn and the River Colne are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time. This includes for example the Cowley Road and St John's Road.

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).
Working chimneys need annual maintenance to ensure they are free from carbon/debris build up and could cause fires within the chimney breast itself.

In a HomeBuyer Report on The Crossway, Uxbridge, Middlesex, UB10 0JH, it was advised that the open flue is inspected by a reputable firm of chimney sweeps and that any recommendations are instigated. There was one fireplaces to the rear section of reception room and front, left bedroom that had been closed and that have been vented accordingly.
Damp meter readings are taken during both a HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey.

If the building surveyor has no concerns then they will state in their report - Moisture readings were taken throughout the property, and we can confirm that, at the dateof inspection, there were no high readings recorded.

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 Uxbridge.

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.

If your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Uxbridge which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

My estate agent told me I don’t need a survey

Fortunately we only come across this on occasion. As we know, English Law puts the emphasis on the buyer in a conveyancing transaction to complete all reasonable checks on the property prior to exchange.

This is explained by the legal term caveat emptor  which is the principle that the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made.

Although the estate agent’s intentions may be pure in advising against a survey, in the event of a buyer moving into a property and finding that there are defects that would have been identified in the simplest of RICS surveyor checks, there is no recourse to the estate agent after the fact.

If the surveyor does not identify any significant defects, then the buyer can complete the purchase with peace of mind, however if defects are identified then an informed decision can be made on whether to proceed with the purchase prior to being contractually tied in.

A survey does also on occasion provide an opportunity to renegotiate on price based on newly identified problems not spotted on first inspection.

An estate agent is paid on completion as is the vendor therefore their drivers for additional property checks are very different to those of the buyers’.
