Top tips for a Hammersmith Home Buyers Survey


Hammersmith is an area where Victorian cottages and larger houses, some from the Georgian period, rub shoulders with modern flat blocks and housing developments.

Some of the houses in Ravenscourt Road back on to the park; Wingate Road has houses painted in pretty pastel colours; St Peter’s Square has large classically designed stucco semi-detached houses; Westcroft Square is a garden square, and Ashchurch Park Villas has pretty semi-detached villas.

New developments include Queen's Wharf, a very modern medium-rise flat block overlooking the river which offers 165 flats, sizes up to 3-bedroom.

Most properties in Hammersmith are built in an area where there are flood warnings and alerts issued from time to time, mainly linked to the River Thames.

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).
Some areas of London are affected by the CIL – Community Infrastructure Levy.

In a recent search of Tabor Road, Hammersmith, London, W6 0BN it was found that the London Mayoral CIL Charging Schedule adopted February 2012 and the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham CIL Charging Schedule adopted 20.05.2015.
The ‘Outside Doors’ are inspected in section E6 of the HomeBuyer Report.

In a recent survey of Batoum Gardens, Brook Green, Hammersmith, London, W6 7QD it was noted “The main entrance door is of timber framed configuration, the door leading to the balcony is of profiled metal double glazing. The doors were found to be in reasonable condition at the time of our inspection and no repairs are required. The junction between the door frames and the openings in the walls in which they are fitted are properly sealed with no apparent defects or repairs needed. The security offered by the door is reasonable “.

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 Hammersmith, 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.

How long does the survey take?

The time necessary to carry out a survey is relative to each property.

Naturally a 6 bed, old Victorian property will take longer to survey than a newly built 1 bed flat as there’s more ground to cover and more defects to look out for.

A conservative estimate of around 2 hours can be used as a rough guideline, however the surveyor will spend as much time in the property as necessary in order to make sure all present defects are commented on.

The building surveyor must spend an appropriate amount of time at the property so that they can provide the complete scope of work set out by the RICS for the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey.

You can read the scope of work in a HomeBuyer Report here.
