A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in East Horsley


East Horsley is a very affluent Surrey village in an area of substantial woodland and some chalky lower slopes of the North Downs. Housing is detached in the vast majority of cases, outnumbering any other type by at least 9:1. The parish church of St Martin's is a medieval church.

You can find grand thatched roof houses which are pre-Georgian in Pennynead Drive, stunning new Georgian-style mansions in High Park Avenue as well as houses built in the 1930s and detached bungalows in The Rise.

Properties in East Horsley which are located in close proximity to the River Wey's and the Mill Tail's tributaries, channels and feeders, in streets such Oaklands Drive and Kingston Avenue, are in areas which are subject to flood 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).

Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in East Horsley.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Forest Road, KT24 5HE, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

What happens if your surveyor finds signs of damp?

If your RICS surveyor flags issues with damp during your defect survey then your next course of action is to contact a damp specialist. The damp surveyor will inspect internal and external walls and floorboards for visible signs of moisture using something called a moisture meter. Finally the surveyor will take a sample of the porous material by drilling into the wall, to see how damp it is.

If you are carrying out the damp survey as part of your due diligence before you buy the property, it is reasonable to ask the seller to cover the costs in your negotiations as the damp will have been worsening during the current owner's tenancy.
