Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Milford, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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.

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 Milford 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 Milford


Milford is a large, affluent village in Surrey with a railway station, has many detached houses, some dating back to the Georgian period. It is home to the fantastic Milford House, built in the first half of the 18th century. 

There are semi-detached houses from all periods of the 20th century there and some more modern properties, such as the terraces in Reris Grange Close and the modern purpose-built flats of Butlers Place and Manor Green (Lower Manor Road).

Properties built in close proximity to the River Wey and its tributaries and channels around Milford are sometimes subject to flood alerts and flood warnings are sometimes issued for properties around Eashing to its north for example in the Hollow and Lower Eashing.

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).

Your RICS surveyor inspects drains during a survey, where the drain cover is accessible and on the site of the property.

If the drains are reported to be blocked you may need to employ a drainage company to inspect the drains with CCTV such as TapCo, 12 Thorkhill Road, Thames Ditton, SURREY, KT7 0UE.

How long does the survey take?

The time necessary to carry out a survey is relative to each property. Naturally a 6 bed, old Victorian property will take longer to survey than a newly built 1 bed flat as there’s more ground to cover and more defects to look out for. A conservative estimate of around 2 hours can be used as a rough guideline, however the surveyor will spend as much time in the property as necessary in order to make sure all present defects are commented on.

The building surveyor must spend an appropriate amount of time at the property so that they can provide the complete scope of work set out by the RICS for the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey.

You can read the scope of work in a HomeBuyer Report here.
