A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property.

Choosing the right survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, to get is important however both a HomeBuyers Report and a Building Survey will identify any suspicions of the main defects discussed below.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in Nottingham which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem 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 Nottingham


Nottingham is a city in the East Midlands which predates Anglo-Saxon times. Nottingham Castle was originally constructed in 1068.

The area around Oxford and Regent Street has a number of Georgian buildings and St Barnabas' RC Church is a Gothic revival building built by Pugin. Some parts of its eastern centre were rebuilt in the 1970s and the Lace Market area south of Hockley has many 4 to 7-storey red brick warehouses from the Victorian period, many of which have been converted into apartments.

Nottingham has several large council and private estates built mainly between the 1920s and 1950s, including the St Ann's, Broxtowe, Strelley, Bilborough, Apsley and Clifton.

More council homes – nearly 15,000 – were built in Nottingham in the 1970s than in any other decade: old people's complexes, low-rise flats, semi-detached and terrace houses. Many of the houses have been bought independently under the Right to Buy scheme.

There are many new build developments such as in Cotgrove and Edwalton, with Help to Buy often available.


In May 2019, Homes England announced the completion of a deal to provide 3,000 new homes and 100,000 square metres of employment space in Ruschcliffe in the Fairham site. Click on 3,000 new homes for Nottinghamshire to find out more.

Nottinghamshire-gUSoFx.pngThe county of Nottinghamshire is based in the East Midlands and its principal town is Nottingham. The county's districts include Ashfield, Broxtowe, Bassetlaw, Mansfield, Newark, Gedling and Sherwood.

The county has two universities; the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University. The former has been around since 1881 and is the largest university in Nottinghamshire and is one of the top 4 universities in the UK for the sum of research funds it receives.

There are a number of prominent football clubs in and around the county, including Nottingham Forest and Notts County, the latter of which is recognised as the oldest association football team in the world now playing at a professional level. 

Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club's home ground is Trent Bridge, also a Test Cricket ground. Notable alumni include Harold Larwood (England's principal strike bowler during the Bodyline series), Sir Gary Sobers and Sir Richard Hadlee.

What happens if the conveyancing falls through before the survey takes place will I get a full refund?

If you need to cancel the survey for any reason at all you need to ensure that you have given the surveyor 48 hours’ notice before the survey takes place. If the surveyor has 48 or more hours’ notice then you will be provided with a full refund.

If however you only give the surveyor 24 hours’ notice then there will be a penalty of £50 due to the fact that the surveyor will not be able to fill that slot in time.

If you cancel on the same day as the Survey Date, or any time after the surveyor has attended the property then no refund is due however the report will be delivered in accordance with the terms agreed with the surveyor.
