Top tips for a Weymouth Home Buyers Survey


Weymouth is a large seaside town in Dorset and its history stretches back to at least the 12th century.

Weymouth has an esplanade which is populated with Georgian terraces, which have seen conversions to a variety of uses, ranging from flats to shops and hotels. 

There are also a number of Victorian period survivals of various sizes. The town also has much housing constructed in the 20th century and up to the present date, both municipal and private.

New build developments include detached houses around the Belle Vue Road area, many with a seaside view; apartments and penthouses in Newtons Road; detached houses in Bowleasze Coveway, Preston and park homes in Montevideo Park, Chickerell Road, among others.

Properties in Weymouth built in the close vicinity of the River Wey and the River Jordan, in streets such as Southill Garden Drive and Radipole Lane, 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, certain areas of Weymouth, including streets such as Canberra Crescent and Bayard 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 10 - 30% (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.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Weymouth area mainly centre around the main road (A354 Weymouth Way) affecting nearby streets such as Pottery Lane and Aynsley Close.

Home Buyers 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 Weymouth.

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 they find any issues during the inspection, our surveyor will flag them up in the HomeBuyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them.

If you are concerned about woodworm, or any other defects with the property in Weymouth you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Any number of people have been understandably confused between a mortgage valuation and a HomeBuyers Survey.

Your lender conducts its own valuation on the property in Weymouth you intend to buy to check that it is lending you the right sum of money in relation to the property's value. It is not intended to examine any defects the property may have.

When you book a HomeBuyers Survey from us, as well as receiving an independent valuation of the property you wish to buy, the primary focus is to establish whether the property has any defects which you should know about, for example rising damp or subsidence, which might, particularly as time passes, end up requiring even tens of thousands of pounds to put right.

This knowledge is naturally of great use to you, given how much you are intending to spend.

You might, on the strength of the information, provided, negotiate with the seller to contribute towards the costs of repairing the defects or even pull out buying the property entirely.


Most importantly, any HomeBuyers Survey is squarely for your benefit and is independent of both your lender - if you are buying with a mortgage - and your vendor. Call 0333 344 3234 to get yours and to help your peace of mind.
