The right survey for the home you are looking to buy will depend on the age and condition of the home and the materials used to build the property. A building survey is best suited for period homes and properties with extensive work or built of unconventional materials. This survey will include a more in-depth view of the property and structure, highlighting any concerns or work required. For more modern properties, a homebuyers survey would suffice, providing the property is in good condition.
Like much of London, the borough of Ealing has a number of Victorian and Edwardian homes, including a selection of traditional Victorian terraced properties. Period homes have seen an increase in popularity in recent years, with homeowners looking from properties with character and original features. For those looking for more modern homes, there are new developments available including flats, semi-detached and detached homes.
Existing properties have proved to be more popular for those moving to the borough of Ealing. During November, there were 189 existing property sales in the borough, compared with 5 new build property sale in the same month. For those buying an existing property, keep in mind that older homes would benefit from a building survey. This will give you a more in-depth view of the property and flag any issues or concerns.
According to Ealing Council, there are 29 conservation areas and almost 600 structures and site in the borough are featured on the National Heritage List for England (NHLE). Some of these listed buildings may be among the properties available to buy in the borough. Keep in mind that it is a criminal offence to extend, demolish or carry out internal or external alterations to a listed building or any other designated structure without first securing the necessary consents from the council.

Subsidence is a dreaded term by homeowners and can cause a whole host of problems for properties. Subsidence occurs when the ground beneath a property “sink” into the ground below. This can cause stability concerns and decrease the value of the home. In severe cases, homes can even be deemed unfit to live in.
Research into subsidence in Britain has found that main cities suffer from higher amounts of subsidence issues, in part due to the number of high-rise buildings in a small area which adds increased pressure to the ground. London is considered to be especially a high-risk area due to much of the city having been built on “London Clay”, a natural material that is a type of shrinkable clay and susceptible to changes.
The borough of Ealing forms part of the London Clay basin and is therefore an area that is likely to experience subsidence concerns. A map created by Geobear, which identifies subsidence hotspots across the UK, supports this, showing that Ealing and the surrounding area has particularly high levels of subsidence.
It is essential that you are aware of any subsidence issues before completing your property purchase. Compare My Move can match you with an experienced building surveyor in Ealing who can conduct a survey on the home and provide a report with details of any stability or subsidence concerns in the home.
Japanese Knotweed is an invasive and highly destructive plant that is found throughout the UK. Growing up to 10cm per day, Japanese Knotweed can force its way through concrete and property foundations. It has the potential to cause significant damage to homes and can decrease the value of properties. In extreme cases, lenders have been known to not approve mortgages for properties plagued with a severe infestation.
Initially introduced to Botanical Gardens in Britain as an ornamental plant, it was later sold commercially. However, its destructive nature has since become clear and can be very expensive to remove.
A heatmap detailing the impact of Japanese Knotweed in the UK showed there were 120 cases of Japanese Knotweed within 4km in the centre of Ealing, with further cases evident across the borough. With this in mind, it is recommended that you enlist the services of a surveyor to ensure that the home does not have knotweed on the premises.
Compare My Move can connect you with an experienced surveyor in the borough of Ealing. Your surveyor will be able to identify if Japanese Knotweed is present on the property or surrounding area. If found, they can also advise you on the best course of action.
