Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Woking and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

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 affecting your property in Woking 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 Woking


Woking has a good cross-section of housing stock from Victorian and earlier to modern developments. There are 16th century houses in Old Woking, the oldest part of the area but many new build flat developments in many places.

Kingfield has an ex-council housing estate which was built in the 1950s and Maybury has many Victorian houses, including the classic terraced houses of the period. Housing around Goldsworth Park was built in the 1960s.

How long does a RICS Building Survey take?

RICS Surveyors often only have one or two inspections a day to ensure they allocate adequate time to assess a property for its defects and issues.

On average our surveyors will spend two to three hours on a standard sized home to complete the full Level 3 RICS Building Survey, however, this can vary for a number of reasons.

It may be that there has been major works done to the property or a major defect is discovered and requires further investigation or access to all areas of the property is not immediately available. This is why our surveyors do not operate with time constraints – they stay on site as long as they need to complete the full inspection.
