Top tips for a Hook Home Buyers Survey


Hook is a small affluent village in Hampshire and it grew out of a hamlet particularly when the railway arrived in 1883.

It has a number of period properties such as the large detached Georgian and Victorian properties in London Road and The Street. There are more modern detached homes in Middle Mead. Hook Common has Victorian cottages.

There are large bungalows from the interwar period in the Potbridge Road and large modern mansions in Holt Park. There are new build developments such as Pembroke Manor, which offers 1 2 and 3 bedroom apartments in purpose-built low-rise blocks.

Properties in Hook which are located in close proximity to the River Whitewater and its tributaries and feeders, in streets such as Alder Wood Drive and Reading Road, are in areas which are subject to flood 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).
Some properties in Hook are located nearby to existing or proposed sites for solar farms.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Vetchfield, Hook, Hampshire RG27 9SL, for example, flagged up that the property was built within 2km of existing or proposed solar farms.

The location of wind farms or turbines can be contentious due to visual impact.
Noise pollution from road traffic in Hook is at its highest around the path of the M3, which runs to the south of the locale. Noise pollution from rail traffic occurs around the vicinity of the railway and affects nearby streets such as Bramshott Drive and Chantry 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, if you're thinking of buying a property in Hook, incredibly important.

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 in your property in Hook, 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 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.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

People have been known to confuse a mortgage valuation with a HomeBuyers Survey. This confusion can prove costly and end up in a home buyer having to fork out for expensive repair costs which should have been shared with the vendor with this reflected in a reduction in the original sale price. If you're buying a property in Hook with a mortgage, your lender conducts its own mortgage valuation to calculate the value of the property and this is in no sense a report on structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey notes defects as well as including a full valuation of a property independently of the mortgage lender or anyone else. The information in it can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing any issues and presents evidence for bargaining with the seller about sharing repair costs, if appropriate.
