Top tips for a Bournemouth Home Buyers Survey


Bournemouth was very sparsely populated and the haunt of fishermen and smugglers (allegedly) until 1810, when Lewis Tregonwell officially founded it as a health resort/spa town. The arrival of the railway in the mid-18th century boosted it further until it was officially recognised as a town in 1870.

It has notable Victorian architecture – parts of the splendid Royal Bath Hotel were built in 1838 abd St Peter's church was completed in 1879. Its growth continued in the early 20th century and two art deco theatres were built as well and the Bournemouth Pavilion was built in 1925.

Although Bournemouth didn't suffer extensive bombing in the 2nd World War, the sea front was heavily fortified which meant destruction of buildings and original fixtures such as lampposts.

There has been substantial redevelopment in Bournemouth and it now has a university; this has brought even more people to the town. You can find 20th century properties from every era in the town, particularly semi-detached homes and there are very recent developments and plans for more home building.

Bournemouth contains Sandbanks, a very rich enclave, which has some huge modern detached properties, many of which are unique, architecturally. The Christchurch area has older period properties and some detached houses with thatched roofs. 

There are plans to build 875 new homes at Roeshot Hill in Christchurch and for 35% of these to be affordable, from small starter homes to large family homes.

Properties in Bournemouth built close to the River Stour are 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).
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Bournemouth area mainly centre around the main road - A338, impacting roads such as Maderia Road and Dean Park Crescent.
Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey of a property in Bournemouth, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such asAce Plubing and Heating, 78 Spring Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4PT.

DorsetDorset is a county in the south of England with the English Channel on its southern coast. Its county town is Dorchester although larger cities and towns include Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth and Ferndown. Dorset has various different types of landscape including clay valleys, limestone ridges and chalk downs. Bournemouth and Poole have their own unitary authorities.

More than 50% of the county is classed as being in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Its coastland in particular has been regarded as very interesting from a geographical/geological perspective, including the Isle of Portland, Durdle Door and Chesil Beach.

Sandbanks, a suburb of Poole, has achieved the heights of having the fourth highest land values in the whole world. Adjacent counties include Hampshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Devon.

Bournemouth Airport offers scheduled flights to the European mainland and islands. There are no motorways in the county and the main trunk roads are the A303, A35 and A31. Poole offers ferries to France and the channel islands. Bournemouth has two universities, Bournemouth University and The Arts University Bournemouth.

Dorset has more than 30 general and specialist museums, including the Tank Museum at Bovington and the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester. Grade I listed buildings include Portland Castle, a coastal fort commissioned by Henry VIII, and Christchurch Priory, the longest church in England.

Thomas Hardy, the famous novelist, was born in Higher Bockhampton near Dorchester in 1840 - his fictional town 'Casterbridge' is based on Dorchester. Enid Blyton, the children's author, allegedly bought Purbeck Golf Club for £1, using it to go on holiday in Swanage: she apparently based many of her 'Famous Five' books around the Isle of Purbeck and Poole Harbour.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in Bournemouth.

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.

Can you attend the Survey with the surveyor?

Most surveyors do not allow the client on site whilst carrying out their inspection. They have a long list of defects that they need to check for and they cannot be distracted from the job in hand as they can be held to account for any missed defects.

The surveyors' professional indemnity insurance does not cover for bringing any third party on site with them while they are completing their inspection, therefore, in the event of any damage being sited by a vendor while the survey is taking place, the surveyor would be liable and uninsured.

On the day of the survey if you have any concerns you can make the surveyor aware of this so they can pay special attention to these areas during their inspection.
