Leafy Northolt used to be called Northala according to its entry in the Domesday Book of 1086. However, there was a settlement in this area in the Saxon days. The name Northolt means ' Northern Wood' and separates it from Southolt (now called Southall). From the middle ages farming was the main occupation and was still prevalent in the early 1800s. By 1876 though most of the varied crops had disappeared and was replaced by the production of hay. Farming continued in Northolt longer than other local towns and villages but by 1963 little remained and by 1990s it had gone altogether.
Over the centuries the population growth was slow and this can be explained by the lack of roads and the poor water supply which was only improved in the 1920s. The big population increase has been due to Northolt's close proximity to Ealing and road building. Modern family homes were built in the 1920s and 1930s, although by the 1950s and 1960s the housing being constructed was predominantly local authority rented housing.

Northolt was once famed for its ‘pony racing' which began here in 1929. In World War Two the racecourse was used as an army depot and prisoner of war camp and was demolished after the war.
Northolt has a lovely village green where the ‘Coronation Clock' has stood since 1937. The clock was put here to commemorate the coronation of King George VI.
Northolt has a good choice of local shops and pubs and is a place where we have carried out many commercial building surveys.

This ensures that you get expert advice on any issues that we may find with the property we are surveying. All our surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - RICS - and are Independent Building Surveyors.

All our survey contain lots of images, clearly showing any problems that we have identified at the property such as woodworm, rising damp or cracking to the walls. We also use sketches in our survey which are aimed at helping you to understand how certain areas are constructed or to help show more clearly a problem that we have identified. You will also find lots of definitions of any building terminology that we may use in our survey, as we firmly believe in 'Plain English' and really want you to fully understand what we are saying in the survey report.
