Top tips for a Basingstoke Home Buyers Survey


Basingstoke is the largest town in Hampshire, lying across a valley at the River Loddon's source. It has properties from many different periods although it has been substantially redeveloped in the 20th century after the 2nd World War, particularly from the 1960s onwards up to the present day, and therefore a substantial proportion of the housing is modern, dating from this time.

New estates in the locale which have been developed since the 1960s include Lychpit, Chineham, Popley, Winklebury, Oakridge, Kempshott, Brighton Hill, Viables, South Ham, Black Dam, Buckskin and Hatch Warren. Popley, Hatch Warren and Beggarwood have experienced rapid growth in housing recently.

Black Dam mainly consists of 1970s and 1980s detached, semi-detached and terrace housing. Chesterfield Road has some 1950s chalet-style bungalows. Chopin Road has some 1970s bungalows. Beecham Road has two-storey semi-detached and detached properties from the 1990s. 

Brookvale has some older period housing in the Worting Road area, including Victorian terraces (also found in Brookvale North). The Downsland Road area has some semi-detached properties from the 1930s. Buckskin has some late 18th century thatched cottages.

Properties in Basingstoke which are built close to the River Loddon and its tributaries and channels, such as in Basing Road, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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, an area to the northeast of Basingstoke, including streets such as Pyotts Hill and Hopton Garth, is 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 1 – 3% (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.
Getting a RICS home buyers survey when you are looking to buy a property in Basingstoke is a great way of getting a professional's opinion on whether the chimney stack, for example, is likely to need repairs done in the near future.

A recent building survey carried out on a property in Elizabeth Road, for example, noted the following about its chimney stack:

"The stack is in satisfactory condition but the mortar joints are weathered and will need repointing in the next few years. No major defects were noted from a ground level inspection. As the stack is shared with adjoining property, it would be prudent if any repairs are carried out to the whole stack rather than just the part owned by each property as the cost of the scaffolding could be shared."

Home Buyers 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 Basingstoke 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.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Basingstoke's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
