Top tips for a Teddington Home Buyers Survey


Teddington, famous for its lock where the tidal Thames meets the fresh water Thames, is a pretty riverside town. Its housing stock is mainly from the Victorian period, whether larger detached houses or cottages, but there are examples of properties from all the periods since then.

There are, for example, superb modern flats in Cambridge House, which overlooks Bushy Park. The area does have council houses, such as can be found in Queens Road, where properties are in the form of medium-rise flats, built in the interwar period. .

Properties in Teddington built in close proximity to the River Thames such as in Kingston Road, Strawberry Vale and Broom Road have been 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).
RICS HomeBuyer Reports for properties in Teddington always remark on the services (gas, water electricity) connected to a home according to the visual inspection carried out.


A recent HomeBuyer Report for a property in Stanley Gardens Road noted that there was no ventilation system in the bathroom and that this could be a future threat because of the build-up of condensation and subsequent mould growth. The surveyor recommended that an appropriate ventilation system should be fitted accordingly.
Pollution from noise in the Teddington area is most notably raised where the railway line crosses (goes under) the main A313 and affects the streets surrounding this area, such as The Causeway, Church Lane and Sydney Road.

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?

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, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive and is highly recommended if you are looking at buying a property in Teddington.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

When you purchase a home in Teddington using a mortgage your Mortgage Lender will require you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may assume this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Unfortunately the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often 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 Teddington you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers Survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect particularly.
