Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

If you are thinking of buying a property in Buckinghamshire, it is vitally important to book a Home Buyers Survey for your peace of mind.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Buckinghamshire has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Buckinghamshire


Buckinghamshire is host to a large section of the Chiltern Hills and much of it is classed as Green Belt. It hosts Chequers, the country house of the UK Prime Minister, built in the 16th century and located near Ellesborough, and Bletchley Park, where the Enigma Code was cracked during the 2nd World War.

The most densely-populated urban area is Milton Keynes but the towns of High Wycombe, Amersham, Chesham and the Chalfonts host much of the county's population: these towns are all part of the London commuter belt.

Properties in Milton Keynes are all post-war and largely consist of standard construction detached, semi-detached and terraced houses along with purpose-built flats. Milton Keynes itself has seen some redevelopment in the last 20 or so years. 

Older period properties can be found in the older towns, villages and hamlets such as Marlow. Beaconsfield is a highly affluent town and has some very large detached homes, some of which are period properties but many are 'knock downs', where the original property was knocked down and a new one built in its place.

There are many newer developments, particularly in the more densely populated areas.

Properties in Buckinghamshire which are built near to major water courses such as the Rivers Thame, Chess, Misbourne and Great Ouse 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).

In section E4 of the HomeBuyer Report, a RICS surveyor reviews the Windows in a property. It will be highlighted if there are any double glazed windows for a very important reason.

Since 2002, double glazing should have either building regulation approval or should have been installed by a contractor registered with FENSA (a government approved trade association). If the double glazing was installed before April 2002, enforceable guarantees for the installation should be available.

In section G1 of the HomeBuyer Report, the surveyor makes comment about the Electrics.

The surveyor is not qualified to test the electrics which is why the report states "Safety warning: The Electrical Safety Council recommends that you should get a registered electrician to check the property and its electrical fittings at least every 10 years, or on change of occupancy. All electrical installation work undertaken after 1 January 2005 should have appropriate certification. For more advice contact the Electrical Safety Council".
BuckinghamshireBuckinghamshire is a county which touches the western edges of the Greater London Area and is mainly rural in aspect. Many of the towns and villages on the eastern edges of the county serve as commuter dormitories for London workers, such as Amersham, Chesham and the Chalfonts. The section of the Chiltern Line, which links Aylesbury with London Marylebone via Amersham, has streamlined this daily journey for many workers in the City of London. Buckinghamshire's county town is Buckingham, but there are a number of larger settlements such as High Wycombe and Aylesbury. 

There is considerable affluence in many parts of the county, such as around Fulmer, Gerrards Cross, Farnham Common and Stoke Poges. Denham Golf Club, which has its own station on the Chiltern Line, is the haunt of many celebrities who have dwellings in the area. The county is the site of the first modern private university to receive a charter, the University of Buckingham. Buckinghamshire has number of areas of outstanding natural beauty, such as Burnham Beeches and the Chilterns (including the Chess Valley).

Does a RICS surveyor perform asbestos testing?

The Survey is a visual assessment to help identify any potential issues. The surveyor will inspect the property and if they have any suspicions of subsidence they will recommend that you get an asbestos specialist into the property.

The asbestos specialist will review of all accessible areas of the property to assess for asbestos and provide details of areas asbestos is potentially affecting along with taking samples and confirming if the material is asbestos.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Buckinghamshire and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards. All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory. At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
