Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Christchurch and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property in Christchurch has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Why can’t I have a HomeBuyer Report on a thatched cottage?

Any property older than 70years/that has had the original fabric of the structure altered/or has a unique feature like a thatched roof is best catered for by a building survey.

The HomeBuyer Report comes in a standard format and anything that falls outside of that, such as an older property where the original build materials have decayed, won’t be adequately addressed and will require the bespoke nature of reporting that comes with a Building Survey.
