Top tips for a Cowley Home Buyers Survey


Cowley is a village joined to Uxbridge town in West London on the outskirts of London in the Borough of Hillingdon. Its St Laurence Church dates back at least as far as Norman times. It remained almost entirely rural until after World War 1.

During the 1930s there was a good deal of building, partly by Uxbridge council, which continued until at least 1965.

Two conservation areas are in the village: Cowley Church (St. Laurence), designated in 1988 and Cowley Lock, designated in 1975, which includes all of Old Mill Lane, Cowley Lake, Little Britain and Cowley bridges.

In the High Street, Old Vine Cottage, The Crown, and Maygood's Farm date from before 1700, and there are several detached 18th-century houses there, some of which may incorporate earlier work. At Cowley Peachey are two timber-framed houses: the Old Cottage probably dates from the 15th or early 16th century and is a three-bay house of which the central bay was originally an open hall. Youi can find 1970s detached houses in Moorfield Road and more recent semi-detached houses in Ferndale Crescent.

You can find plenty of early 20th century houses around Rockingham Road and Cowley Mill Road as well as later developments from the 1930s onwards. These are predominantly semi-detached houses.

New build developments include Union Park, which has a variety of different styles of home on the banks of the Grand Union Canal around Packet Boat Lane.

Properties in Cowley which are built in close proximity to the River Pinn, the Fray's River and the River Colne, such as in streets like Amberley Way and a section of Hillingdon Road, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Cowley, including streets such as Enfield Close and Elthorne Road, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Solar energy is one of several alternative energy sources; however, the location of a solar farm can be contentious due to its visual impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search has shown that a property in Oxford Road, Cowley, Oxford, OX4 2ER, is within 2km of existing or proposed solar farms.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Cowley and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Cowley's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
