A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Wolverhampton has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Wolverhampton


Wolverhampton is in the West Midlands and is a city which grew from being a market town. It hosts properties like Wightwick Manor, a Victorian manor house, first completed in 1887 and one of only a few surviving examples of a house built and furnished under the influence of the Arts & Crafts movement.

The railways reached the city in 1837, which was a spur to housing and population growth and the 19th century saw much immigration from Wales and Ireland.

Housing development continued into the 20th century when mass council housing was built after the 1st world war. The council built new estates at Parkfields and Birches Barn. The first large housing development of this sort was the Low Hill estate to the city's northeast and construction continued into the 1930s, concentrated in the Oxley and Wobaston areas to the north and the new Scotlands Estate in the northeast.

Housing developments continued into the 1950s and 1960s and large towers were built in areas like Blakenhall, Whitmore Reans and Chetton Green.

The city centre's buildings mainly date from the early 20th century, but there are buildings like St Peter's Church, which dates back originally to the 13th century.

New build developments include the large detached houses in Wergs Road, Tettenhall Wood, the low-rise apartments in Gatis Street, Akron Drive and Rothesay Gardens and the flats and houses in Leicester Street.

Properties in Wolverhampton near Wightwick Manor to its west, built in close proximity to the Smestow Brook and the River Stour and to the east of the manor, in streets such as Firsway and Viewlands Drive, 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, some parts of Wolverhampton, including streets such as Bilston Road - A41 and Dixon Street, 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 5-10% (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.

A recent Environsearch that took place in Middlesbrough showed that there was potential for natural ground instability in the area within 50m of a property on Raines Court (road).

The British Geological Survey has assessed the area of search as having moderate potential for natural groundinstability. This does not necessarily mean there is cause for concern in terms of the property's stability. Active subsidence willbe dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require aninspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built. A house buyers survey is advised tolook for signs of property damage that may indicate poor natural ground conditions.
StaffordshirStaffordshire is a county in the West Midlands region of England and its largest city is Stoke-on-Trent, which is its own independent unitary authority. Other major settlements in the county include Lichfield, a cathedral city which is much smaller than Stoke, Stafford (the county town), Burton upon Trent, Cannock, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Leek and Tamworth.

Flash, the highest village in Britain, which stands at 463 metres above sea level, is in the county. The Staffordshire breed of bull terrier takes its name from the county as a dog bred for hunting. The county hosts the hilly Peak District and Cannock Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are more miles of canal in Staffordshire than in any other county in England and there are also many coalfields.

The county contains two universities, the University of Keele and the University of Staffordshire. Stoke-on-Trent is the major transport hub and there are two motorways going through the county, the M6 and the M54. Stoke-on-Trent railway station offers direct services to London Euston.

Staffordshire was where the first jar of Marmite was produced. Justus Von Liebig realised that a by-product of beer brewing could be bottled and eaten. Adjacent counties include Cheshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, West Midlands, Worcestershire and Shropshire.
