Why should I consider buying a property in Bournemouth?

How to choose a surveyor

However, some of the reasons Bournemouth is such a great place to live can cause problems for property buyers.

For example, the lush, tree-lined avenues and extensive local tree preservation orders can mean drainage and structural issues.

Whether you are looking at a seaside villa, modern flat, family home or cosy cottage, make sure you talk to trusted local surveyors in Bournemouth before committing to your purchase.

Home Buyers Survey Bournemouth

When buying a property, it is important to carry out a HomeBuyer Report survey to check for any current or future problems. Armed with this information, you are able to make fully informed decisions regarding the purchase and there are no nasty surprises down the road. 

At Trinity Rose, our experienced local surveyors offer a RICS Level 2 Survey, with two options: HomeBuyer Report (Survey) or HomeBuyer Report (Survey and Valuation). 

These kinds of surveys are perfect for conventional properties, typically those less than 100 years old and those that have not been substantially altered. Both use the simple ‘traffic light’ condition rating system which is thorough yet easy to understand.

A HomeBuyer Report (Survey) focuses on serious or urgent problems that could need specialist attention, costly repairs and/or may affect the property’s value. It includes:

  • background information on the property and setting
  • assessment of the key building elements 
  • a review of any timber/damp issues
  • a review of drainage and insulation 


Bournemouth has been a popular holiday destination since Victorian times and it’s easy to see why. Not only is the area spoilt with a beautiful beach-side setting, it is a hub for leisure, culture and business in its own right. 

While lucky visitors enjoy everything Bournemouth has to offer, those who live here are luckier still. They get to wake up to the fresh sea air and vibrant town every single day. Beyond the blue flag beaches there are fantastic local schools, excellent transport links, theatres, cinemas, restaurants, regular music events and so much more. Plus, as people become increasingly determined to move to desirable areas on the south coast, your investment is likely to make great financial sense as well. 

A HomeBuyer Report (Survey and Valuation) includes all the above plus a market valuation and insurance rebuild cost.

It will include the same level of advice on defects that may affect the value of the property and some simple advice and recommendations for repairs and further investigation.

When you choose us for a HomeBuyer’s Survey in Bournemouth, whichever option you choose your report will be written in jargon-free English with colour-coded condition and energy performance ratings.

We’ll offer advice on what you should do before exchange and give you peace of mind that the property holds no nasty secrets.

Building Survey Bournemouth

A Level 3 Building Survey is the right choice for you if you’re buying a property that’s old, large, significantly altered or constructed from non-conventional materials/techniques, or if you’re planning to carry out major renovations.

Also known as a Structural Survey, it will give you thorough insight into the property and its condition.

A RICS Level 3 Building Survey with Trinity Rose provides:​

  • photographs to illustrate our findings 
  • a description of all visible defects 
  • any potential problems caused by hidden flaws
  • an outline of repair options 
  • details of serious risks and potentially dangerous conditions including subsidence, structural movement, woodworm or dampness
  • details of what might happen if you don’t follow the recommended actions

Home Condition Report Bournemouth

When you buy a property, you should always ask a professional surveyor to check it is in good condition.

This gives reassurance that there aren’t structural issues and there won’t be unexpected repair work after your purchase.

A Level 1 Survey or Home Condition Report is a basic option for peace of mind. It gives a simple overview including traffic light condition ratings and is generally the lowest price survey option for newer homes. 

Limited Defect Report Bournemouth

Limited Defect Reports are not full structural surveys but they are perfect if you have concerns about a specific issue or issues. Whether it’s your own home or a property you’re thinking of buying, we can help you better understand the seriousness of a range of potential problems including cracks in walls, damp, infestations, uneven roofs and other structural defects.

We provide a full diagnostic survey, detail the cause of the problem and suggest the best course of action.

Party Wall Surveying Bournemouth

Party wall disputes arise at or near a ‘line of junction’ between buildings and can be problematic and upsetting.

A chartered surveyor skilled in The Party Wall Etc. Act 1996 can help resolve issues fairly.

If your neighbour is planning works at or near your border or you’re thinking of your own project, we can conduct investigations to help both parties come to an understanding.

Our experienced surveyors will help settle disputes fairly and impartially to help you keep on good terms with your neighbours.
