Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Putney, 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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the HomeBuyers 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 Putney 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.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Putney


Although Putney has numerous sizeable Victorian and Edwardian houses (both detached and semi-detached) and terraces, it also has other styles such as the tower block at Putney Wharf. You can expect to pay more for a riverside property. Upper Richmond Road has seen extensive redevelopment as residential towers gradually replace office blocks, such as Stamford Square, next to East Putney Underground station.

The newly-developed Tileman House in Upper Richmond Road offers some shared ownership flats and the Dover House Estate, south of Lower Richmond Road and east of Roehampton Lane, is an ex-council estate, built between 1919 and 1929, where you can find 3-bedroom cottages.

Flood warnings and alerts in Putney are generally restricted to homes on the immediate south bank of the Thames for example those built to the north of Wandsworth Park and Deodar Street.

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).

Most clients find it useful to read the Conclusions and Summary in Building Survey, to gain a general ‘overview’ of the most significant matters. It is, however, essential that the whole report is read and considered in detail.

A full inspection by an NICEIC electrician is recommended with most flats aged over 20 years old as the fuse boards may not be up to current day standards. All necessary associated repairs should be carried out accordingly by an Electrician such as S W Electrical, 101-107 Upper Richmond Rd, London SW15 2TH.
London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Why do I need a survey if I have had a Mortgage Valuation?

A property survey is different from a mortgage valuation report. A valuation is a cursory look at a property to assess how much it is worth and whether it is suitable for a mortgage, this will include a note of any major works that might affect the value of the property however It is not a detailed inspection of the property’s condition.

Before buying a property, it’s a good idea to get a professional to carry out a thorough inspection. The Building survey and Homebuyers report will make you aware of problems with the property structure, repairs or alterations that need to be made and risk associated with the property.

Buying a new home is likely to be the most expensive purchase you ever make so it’s important to make sure you’re making a sound investment that won’t result in you losing money in the long run.
