Top tips for a Northwood Home Buyers Survey


Northwood is a fairly affluent area in northwest London in Hillingdon Borough which became a village (from a hamlet) in the 19th century and by 1891 had 115 houses, which rose to around 500 houses and a 2,500 population by 1901.

Northwood Station on the Metropolitan Line opened in 1887, which provided impetus for expansion. The Emmanuel Church was built in 1895.

Houses around the old High Street, Chester Road and Hallowell Road include Victorian houses made with quality brickwork, many of which are listed. There are large detached properties, both period and very modern, in Eastbury, particularly Eastbury Avenue. The area contains much housing stock built during the 1930s. The first houses were built in Potter Street.

There are new build developments in Lowswood Close, Copshill Way and Ducks Hill Road, which are predominantly large and detached properties.

Properties in Northwood which are built in close proximity to the feeders and tributaries of the River Colne, including streets such as St Mary's Road and Station Approach, are in an area which is subject to flood 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Northwood, including streets such as Hallowell Road and Highfield 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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Northwood area mainly centre around the main road – A404, Pinner Road, impacting roads and streets such as Roblina Close and Sovereign Close.

LondonGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Northwood, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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.

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.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to a valuation for the property you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation.

The mortgage valuation is paid for by you however the results aren't always shared with you as the survey belongs to the mortgage lender.

On top of which it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Northwood that you arrange your own Homebuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey.

Buying without a survey could leave you at the mercy of undetected defects such as rising damp which can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.

Homebuyers surveys are different to Mortgage Valuations, see an example from SAM conveyancing
