Top tips for a Waterlooville Home Buyers Survey


Waterlooville is a town in Hampshire to the north of Portsmouth and is part of the South Hampshire conurbation. Its name has apparently derived from a pub which used to be called 'Heroes of Waterloo', which opened in 1815 and which used to be the focal point and centre of the area. It was subsequently demolished in 1966.

Though the odd surviving period property can be seen, much of the housing was built in the 20th century, particularly semi-detached and terrace dwellings built in the interwar period and after the 2nd world war. During the 1950s and 1960s, the area around St George's Church saw a large increase in housing, both private and municipal. The church itself was rebuilt in 1970.

Much of Waterlooville as well as Purbrook, Cowplain and Horndean, has grown outwards from London Road but to the west of Waterlooville and Purbrook, (the area bordered by Hambledon Road and London Road) there is much undeveloped land, so the centre of Waterlooville borders fields to the west just a few hundred meters away, while to the north, east and south it is bordered by housing estates and Cowplain and Purbrook respectively.

More recently, the West of Waterlooville Major Development Area has seen housing being built around the area of Maurepas Roundabout and nearby.

In March 2019, Homes England agreed £3.4 million in funding to develop the Havant Civic Campus site (click to find out more) in order to build 121 new apartments, all built using modern construction methods

New build developments include the modern flats in Parklands, Denmead and the large detached houses in Chalton Lane, Clanfield.

Properties in Waterlooville built close to the water courses to the west of the business park, in streets such as Sheepwash Lane and Newlands Lane, are in an area where flood 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 Waterlooville, including streets such as Purbrook Heath Road and Widley, 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.
Any areas to be explored for their energy potential by the oil & gas industry must be licensed by the Oil and Gas Authority. Such exploration includes areas subject to hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") investigation.

A recent Environmental Report carried out for a property in Stakes Road, Waterlooville, PO7 5LX stated that it was built within 4km of an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production.

Is a mortgage valuation a Building Survey?

Many mistakenly think that a mortgage valuation is the same as a HomeBuyers Survey and the consequence is that home buyers can subsequently have to shell out money for repairing faults and defects that could well have been part of the bargaining process with the seller on purchase. The surveyor appointed by the lender conducts a mortgage valuation to estimate the value of the property: this survey is not concerned with detailing structural defects.


A HomeBuyers Survey lists and reports on defects and includes a full appraisal and valuation of your property in Waterlooville which is completely independent of the mortgage lender. This knowledge can be used to get quotes for the cost of fixing defects and, most importantly, gives you evidence which can be used to bargain with the seller about sharing any such cost.
