Top tips for a Southampton Home Buyers Survey


Southampton is the largest city in Hampshire and has a major maritime history.

Southampton Castle was built in the 12th century and there are surviving remains of 12th century houses such as King John's House and Canute's Palace. The city walls include God's House Tower, built in 1417, the first purpose-built artillery fortification in England.

The town expanded greatly in the Victorian era, particularly when the Southampton Docks were formed, starting from 1842. Pockets of Georgian architecture survived the 2nd world war, but much of the city was levelled. There has been extensive redevelopment since then. Council estates are in the Weston, Thornhill and Townhill Park districts.

New build developments include Fen Meadow (2, 3 and 4-bedroom houses) and are in areas such as Sarisbury Green, Swanmore and Whippingham.

Local Tip 1

Local Tip 3
Properties in Southampton which are built in close proximity to the River Itchen, in streets like Janaway Gardens and Priory 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, some parts of Southampton, including streets such as Exmoor Road and Clovelly 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 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.
Southampton – Other Influential Factors
Some areas are designated as having environmental or historical importance; as such there may be constraints on property or land developments or alterations.

A recent envirosearch reported that a property in Keppel Rise, Centenary Quay, Woolston, Southampton, SO19 9UD, was within 250m of an area likely to be impacted by environmental constraints.

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