Top tips for a Hounslow Home Buyers Survey


Hounslow’s housing stock was built, in the main, post-war – there are any number of semi-detached houses built in the 1950s – and as factory employment declined and office work increased, further standard construction housing was built in the two decades after the 1970s.

You can still find some Georgian-style housing in the Lampton area, which is the northern part of central Hounslow, lying immediately south of the Great West Road.

Buildings in Twickenham built close to the River Crane, the Duke of Northumberland's River and those on the banks of the River Thames, including in streets such as Kendrey Gardens and Chase Gardens, 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).
Properties built around the A4 and A30 are likely to experience higher noise levels.
Soil types in Hounslow are generally loamy with naturally high groundwater.

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 involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage.

The survey is non-intrusive. If you are thinking of buying a property in Hounslow, it is highly advisable to book one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report,.

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 Hounslow 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.

Does a surveyor use a ladder during a survey?

Surveyors come equipped with an array of tools and devices in order for them to diagnose and report on any defects internally and externally affecting the property that the client is looking to purchase.

Usually when clients ask whether a surveyor comes equipped with a ladder there is normally concern with a roof or a noted issue with the roofing.

If you do have a concern then make sure you highlight this to the surveyor prior to their inspection to ensure it’s specifically reported on.

Your surveyor can come with a three meter ladder to access flat roofs or gain access to advantage points to assess harder to reach areas in conjunction with utilising telescopic camera mounts to document areas which are defective.
