Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, 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. It is highly recommended that you get one, 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 St Leonards-on-Sea.

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.

Focus and limitations of the HomeBuyer Report

The HomeBuyer Report service is specifically designed for lay people that want a professional opinion at an economic price for the property they are buying. It is, therefore, necessarily less comprehensive than a level 3 building survey.

The focus of the surveyor is on assessing the general condition of the main elements of the property you are buying, and identifying and evaluating the particular features that affect its present value and may affect its future resale. The Building Surveyor's inspection is not exhaustive, and no tests are undertaken. There is, therefore, a risk that certain defects may not be found that would have been uncovered if testing and/or a more substantial inspection had been undertaken. This is a risk that the client must accept.

However, where there is ‘a trail of suspicion’ the surveyor ‘must take reasonable steps to follow the trail’. These ‘reasonable steps’ may include recommending further investigation.
