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 Ewell.

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 in your property in Ewell, 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 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.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Ewell


Ewell is on the line which separates the chalk of the North Downs and London Clay. The rural area developed somewhat after 1847 when the railway arrived but larger influxes of people only occurred in the 20th century.

Most of the housing consists of 1930s and 1940s semi-detached houses but there are some surviving properties from the Edwardian, Victorian and earlier periods. There are a number of listed buildings, particularly from the Victorian period, including the St Mary the Virgin parish church, consecrated in 1848.

There are also many modern houses and flats and the locale is set to have various new developments, such as the Nescot College site, Ethel Bailey Gardens and Hollmoor Lane. All three of these will offer some affordable housing and properties which can bought under shared ownership.

Does the surveyor use Drones to assess the property?

The use of more advanced digital technology within assessing properties is on the rise but don’t always exceed the results obtained from more industry standard equipment or save any time.

RICS surveyors have a selection of measuring equipment, recording devices and equipment for assessing remote and concealed areas such as standard lifting equipment for inspection chamber covers, meter cupboard keys, hand mirrors, a ladder that gives safe access to spaces that are three metres above floor level, and binoculars or telescopes for parts of the property at high level which can be utilized to efficiently certify efects.
