A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Bushey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure is non-intrusive.

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 affecting your property in Bushey 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 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 Bushey


Bushey is a town in the Hertsmere Borough of Hertfordshire, just to the northwest of London's boundary.

The 19th and 20th centuries marked the time of most change in Bushey, especially between 1860 and 1960. The population rose 28-fold within 200 years, from 856 in 1801, to just under 24,000 today. The expansion was for many reasons, one of the main ones being due to the boom in industry caused by the railway in the early 20th century.

In the early 1920s, Bushey's first council houses were built. More housing was later built for the service families working in defence organisations in Stanmore and Northwood.

Housing is a mix of semi-detached and terraces with a fair number of larger detached houses, with most properties being built between the 1930s and 1960s. Wayside Avenue and other roads around Little Bushey Lane around Bushey Heath have some very large detached and semi-detached houses.

New build developments include Sandbrook Park in Rossway Drive, which are essentially upmarket family homes.

Properties in Bushey which are built very close to the River Colne, in streets such as Dalton Way and Lower High Street, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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).

When a RICS surveyor carries out either a building survey or a homebuyer report on a property in the Bushey area, they might notice signs that the dwelling has an infestation problem. If this is the case, they will advise that a qualified pest control company comes to the property to fix the problem.

HertfordshireHertfordshire is commonly abbreviated to the name Herts and is a county located in the south of England. it is bordered by Bedfordshire to the north, Cambridgeshire to the north-east, Essex to the east, Buckinghamshire to the west and Greater London to the south (it is classed as a 'Home County' for this reason). The county town of Hertfordshire is Hertford.

Hertfordshire has 3 motorways running through it - the M1, the M25 and the A1(M). It is particularly associated with new towns as it contains 5 in total: Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Hemel Hempstead, Hatfield and Letchworth. There are two airports just outside Hertfordshire's borders; Luton and Stansted. It also has a university, the University of Hertfordshire, which is in Hatfield. There are a number of independent schools in the area, including, for example, Haileybury (Turnford), St George's Harpenden, Haberdasher's Aske's (Elstree) and Berkhamsted.

For random facts; St Alban, who gave his name to the city in the county, was the earliest British saint - he was reputed to have been beheaded where the cathedral now stands; also Sele Mill near Hertford was the site of the first paper mill in Britain, established about 1488.

What happens if you choose the wrong survey for the type of property?

If once the Building Surveyor turns up to complete the survey, they feel the property does not suit the type of survey purchase, the surveyor will inform the client and the survey will not take place.

The scope of work of a HomeBuyer Report is different from that of a Building Survey. You an read the scope of work in a HomeBuyer Report here.

In most cases, the surveyor will agree to complete the appropriate inspection and then the client can pay the additional fee for the more appropriate survey.
