A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a homebuyers survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Diss incredibly important.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Diss


Diss is a market town in Norfolk in the East Anglia region of England. Opposite its 14th-century parish church of St. Mary the Virgin stands a 16th-century building known as the Dolphin House.

There is a great variety of styles of property including Georgian double-fronted terrace houses in Lopham, large Victorian detached houses in Norwich Road, Dickleburgh, large modern mansions in Low Road, Wortham and 1930s semi-detached houses in Louie's Lane.

New build developments include the detached houses in Common Road, Bressingham and in Burston Road, Dickleburgh.

Properties in Diss which are built in close proximity to the River Waveney, in streets such as Titchfield Hill and Wallington Shore Road, are in areas 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).

A recent Environmental Search taken out for a property in The Street, Rickinghall, Diss, Norfolk, IP22 1BN, stated that it was within 250m of an area where there is the potential for ground instability relating to non-coal mining.

The British Geological Survey has assessed that hazards because of underground non-coal mine workings in this area are highly likely. This area is known or suspected to contain underground mining for minerals and/or other materials where workings are likely to be extensive. This is not necessarily cause for concern; a house buyer's survey should be considered to test for signs of property damage which may relate to non-coal mining. Additionally, it should be noted that there is always the possibility of excavations that are outside of the scope of this dataset which could affect ground stability.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Diss area mainly centre around the main road – A0166, Stanley Road, which is effecting streets and roads such as Sand Stone Way and Denmark Lane.
NorfolkNorfolk is a county in the East Anglia region of England and its coastline is on the North Sea, including the Wash. Its county town is Norwich and it is largely rural, although 40% of the population live in just four urban centres, namely Norwich (which is Norfolk's only city), Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn and Thetford.

One of its major tourist attractions is the Norfolk Broads, a network of rivers and lakes, which is a National Park. Adjacent counties include Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.

There are no motorways in the county - the principal trunk roads there are the A10 and A11 - although Norwich does have an international airport. There are two universities, namely the University of East Anglia located on the outskirts of Norwich, and Norwich University of the Arts, located in St George's Street in Norwich city centre.

Norfolk has a number of amusement parks, zoos, stately homes and nature reserves, including Thrigby Hall near Great Yarmouth (tiger enclosure, primates and reptiles), Holkham Hall (beautiful 18th century stately home with a deer park, Banham Zoo and Pensthorpe Nature Reserve near Fakenham (lapwing, Eurasian crane, Marabou stork).

When should you book your survey?

A survey from booking to getting your report should normally take around 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year (busy periods are July, August and December).

The best advice is to instruct your surveyor at the same time as you instruct your solicitor. The reason being is that your solicitor tells you of any legal reason to not buy the property and the surveyor will look to tell you if their is any visual reason to stop buying or to renegotiate the selling price.
