Top tips for a Weymouth Home Buyers Survey


Weymouth is a large seaside town in Dorset and its history stretches back to at least the 12th century.

Weymouth has an esplanade which is populated with Georgian terraces, which have seen conversions to a variety of uses, ranging from flats to shops and hotels. 

There are also a number of Victorian period survivals of various sizes. The town also has much housing constructed in the 20th century and up to the present date, both municipal and private.

New build developments include detached houses around the Belle Vue Road area, many with a seaside view; apartments and penthouses in Newtons Road; detached houses in Bowleasze Coveway, Preston and park homes in Montevideo Park, Chickerell Road, among others.

Properties in Weymouth built in the close vicinity of the River Wey and the River Jordan, in streets such as Southill Garden Drive and Radipole Lane, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued 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, certain areas of Weymouth, including streets such as Canberra Crescent and Bayard Road, 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 10 - 30% (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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Weymouth area mainly centre around the main road (A354 Weymouth Way) affecting nearby streets such as Pottery Lane and Aynsley Close.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A 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 Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are considering buying a property in Weymouth, 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 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 in Weymouth 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.

Do you need a RICS Building Survey for a new flat?

The RICS HomeBuyers Report is specifically designed to be an ideal home buyers survey for flats and bungalows and smaller, more modern properties in general.

Your RICS surveyor checks all areas that are accessible within the property for the report, notes any suspicions of property defects such as subsidence and damp and will give a general review of the construction and condition of the property.

The report also gives you a market valuation and reinstatement cost.

A RICS Building Survey is more suited to older properties, larger properties and/or those which have been extended and those made of non-standard construction materials.
