A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, 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. It is highly recommended that you get one, 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 Eastbourne.

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 shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Eastbourne has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

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