A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in West Drayton.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the HomeBuyers 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 affecting your property in West Drayton 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 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.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in West Drayton


West Drayton is a suburban town in West London bordered by the Great Western Railway and the Grand Union Canal to the north. It has a number of listed period properties around the Green, particularly from the Victorian era.

Most properties in the area are semi-detached and terrace houses built between the 1920s and 1950s and there are some bungalows, such as in Roseary Close. There are modern detached properties in Frays Avenue and Ferrers Avenue and interwar detached properties in West Drayton Park Avenue.

New build properties are available in Drayton Garden Village and some are covered under Help to Buy.

Properties in West Drayton which are built in close proximity to the River Colne, in streets like Frays Avenue and Colne Avenue, are 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).

A recent Environmental Search for a property in 73 Merrivale Mews, West Drayton, Middlesex, UB7 7LZ, stated that the dwelling was within 50m of an area with 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 West Drayton area mainly centre around the main road – M4, impacting roads and streets such as The Glebe and Fir Tree Avenue.
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.

Why can’t I have a Building Survey on a flat?

As a rule, flats/maisonettes/post 1950s standard construction properties are best suited to HomeBuyer Reports.

The surveyor has substantially less to check and remark upon when surveying these types of property, additionally more modern buildings benefit from better construction techniques in the main.

To carry out a full Building Survey on a property such as this would be overkill, whereas a Homebuyer Report is designed for and is more than adequate for completing the task and, most importantly, for reporting any signs or suspicions of defects.
