Top tips for a Hampshire Home Buyers Survey


Hampshire's population is located predominantly (nearly 50%) in the South Hampshire conurbation, based around the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth and has two National Parks, the New Forest and the South Downs (together, 45% of the county's area).

Portchester Castle has Roman walls built around the 3rd century and the beautiful Winchester Cathedral was originally opened in 1093. 

Older period properties are more likely to be found in the smaller towns, villages and hamlets such as Fordingbridge; the conurbations, although they have surviving period properties, have much newer housing developments and plenty of detached, semi-detached and terrace houses of standard construction built in various eras in the 20th century.

Properties in Hampshire which are built along the coastline or near to large water courses such as the River Avon and the River Test, are 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Hampshire, including streets such as Four Marks, Medstead, Ropley and West Tisted, 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 of 5 - 10% (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.
Levels of pollution from traffic noise in Hampshire tend to be at their highest along the paths of the various motorways in the county, namely the M3, M27, A3(M) and M271. For railway noise, the highest levels are along the main lines from London going to Southampton and Portsmouth respectively and along the railway line connecting these two cities.

Home Buyers 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 Hampshire 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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Hampshire and what needs to be done to remedy it.

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are considering buying in Hampshire and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects. 

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 01252 560 064 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Hampshire.
