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 Fareham 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.

If the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Fareham then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

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 Fareham


Fareham is a market town on the tip of Portsmouth Harbour between Portsmouth and Southampton in the southeast of Hampshire. The town has a documented history dating back to the Norman era.

The town has period properties from many eras, including the delightful Georgian townhouses in the High Street and the Victorian terrace houses in The Square in Titchfield. Fareham has numerous properties built in the 20th century, such as the 1930s semi-detached properties in Blackbrook Road.

In the 1960s, Fareham experienced a huge amount of development and large housing areas of Hill Park, Miller Drive, and much of Portchester grew until there was a continuous urban conurbation from Portsmouth to Southampton. By this time Fareham had expanded to almost encompass the surrounding villages of Funtley, Titchfield, Catisfield and Portchester. Whiteley was developed in the 1990s.

New build developments include the coming Welborne Garden Village development, intended to produce 6,000 new houses of various sizes. Construction started in 2015 and is set to continue until 2036.

Properties in Fareham which are built in close proximity to the River Meon and the Wallington River, 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).

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Fareham, including streets such as Bath Lane (Lower) and Belvoir Close, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential which is 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.

A local Environmental Search taken out for a property based in Lynn Crescent, Fareham, PO14 4FP, is 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.

How long do I have to wait for my survey?

When you instruct Sam Conveyancing to complete a survey on a property you will receive an email from us stating all the information that you need to know about your survey.

Once our surveyor has completed the survey at the property they will call you when they are back in their office between 4pm-6pm on the same the day to inform you if they found any defects at the property.

The surveyor will then type up the report and email it directly to you 5 working days later. However, If following the survey the surveyor feels the report is going to take longer to produce than the normal time frame, due to the amount of detail required, then they’ll advise you of when the survey report will be made available to you.
