Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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 they find any issues during the inspection of your property in Enfield, our surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them. An example of this is where the surveyor finds evidence of woodworm infestation. 

If you are concerned about any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. 

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 Enfield


Enfield's St Andrew's Church dates from the 14th century and has some excellent Georgian houses, with even older houses in the country lanes of the Clay Hill area. Victorian flat-fronted cottages can be found in Gentleman's Row and River View overlooking or backing onto the New River.

Bush Hill Park has detached and semi-detached houses from the Edwardian period and the 1920s and elsewhere there are any number of Victorian, Edwardian and 1920s and 1930s semi-detached and terrace housing. Browning Road and the streets around it have many Victorian terrace properties.

There are a number of new developments including Enfield Central, which when completed is set to offer studio flats as well as 1 and 2 bedroom flats and 2-bedroom duplexes. The properties will be made from newly built blocks and office-to-residential conversion.

Housing built near to Salmon's Brook in Enfield, such as in The Chase or Windmill Gardens, is subject to flood warnings and 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).
drop-purple.png Enfield – ground stab
A recent Environmental Search for a property in Kynaston Road, Enfield, EN2 0DB noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of the property.

This finding did not necessarily mean that there was a cause for concern in terms of the property's stability: active subsidence depends on local conditions such as the proximity of trees. A house buyers survey is advised to look for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.

Raised levels of noise pollution from road traffic in Enfield are at their highest around the ring of roads of London Road, Southbury Road and Genotin Road, affecting streets nearby such as Tiptree Drive and Essex Road.

Raised levels of noise pollution from railways centre around Enfield Station, which is a terminus, and the railway going southwards, and affect nearby streets such as Beverley Close and Waddington Close.
London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

People, particularly first time buyers, have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to spend money on expensive repair costs which should have been divided up with the seller with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. Your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property you are trying to buy in Enfield and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate, or even deciding not to go ahead with buying a property. Call 0207 112 5388 and speak to our experts to book your HomeBuyers Survey.
