Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS 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, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Wilmslow.

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 Wilmslow 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.

Do I get aerial photos of my property as part of my survey?

Your surveyor will take photographs of your roof as part of your survey. These may form part of a Building Survey or may be referred to in a Homebuyer Report.

These photos are not aerial photos; they are normally taken from ground level and possibly from using a device which enables photos to be taken from an upper window.

The surveyor takes photos as part of their checking of the property for defects; they will inspect all accessible areas in order to do this, including the drains and the loft (if this is present and they can get to it).
