Why should I consider buying a property in Bishop’s Waltham?

Bishop’s Waltham offers a fantastic quality of life to its residents. If you like the sound of beautiful, historic buildings, idyllic countryside surroundings and a wonderful community: this could be the town for you.

In the town itself, there is a preschool, infant, and junior school, and a secondary school in nearby Swanmore. There are many independent shops to choose from on the picturesque high street, plus some small chain stores.

Adding to the atmosphere of the town: there is a busy annual events calendar including fairs, sporting fixtures and a weekly country market selling local and homemade products. 

London is approximately two hours away by either train or car, and Southampton can be reached in under 30 minutes. The latter offers multiple shopping centres, theatres, two universities, an international airport and ferry ports, making it a real hub just a short journey away. 

The local buildings tell the history of the area and include the interesting, historic Bishop’s Waltham Palace, beautiful Georgian buildings and the Norman parish church. There is a range of properties available and it’s always advisable to get advice from trusted local surveyors in Bishop’s Waltham before you commit. Some buildings are listed and even apparently problem-free properties can hide secrets from the untrained eye.

HomeBuyers Survey Bishop’s Waltham

Bishop’s Waltham has a selection of property for every requirement. Whether your heart is set on a large, listed family home or a modern house on a new development, it’s important to get a survey to ensure there are no nasty surprises once you get the keys.

At Trinity Rose Surveyors Bishop’s Waltham, we offer a range of surveys which go into different levels of detail and cost different amounts. A nationally recognised RICS Level 2 Survey will highlight serious problems, but won’t look at structural detail. This kind of report is known as a HomeBuyer Report (Survey) and is recommended for properties built in the past 100 years that have not been significantly altered.

If you book a HomeBuyer Report (Survey) we will write a clear, jargon-free report telling you about the condition of the property. You will find out about any serious problems that may require urgent or specialist attention and we’ll use a ‘traffic light’ rating system which is clear and easy to understand. It includes:

·    Background information on the property and setting

·    A review of any timber/damp issues

·    A review of drainage and insulation

·    Assessment of the key building elements


We also offer the option to add a valuation to this kind of survey, which clients find helpful when deciding if they’re paying the right price. A HomeBuyer Report (Survey and Valuation) is identical to the above but also includes a market valuation and insurance rebuild cost.

Building Survey Report Bishop’s Waltham

If you feel the property in question requires a more in-depth survey, a RICS Level 3 Building Survey could be the right choice for you. We would recommend this, our most comprehensive report, for any of the local Georgian houses or anything that is old, large, built unusually, substantially altered or if you have got plans for big changes yourself.


This report is commonly known as a Structural Survey and will really put your mind at ease before you make a big commitment to a property.


A Building Survey Report in Bishop’s Waltham with Trinity Rose includes:

·   A description of all visible defects

·   Photographs to illustrate our findings

·   Serious problems and potentially dangerous conditions such as woodworm, dampness, subsidence and structural movement

·   Any potential problems caused by hidden flaws

·   An outline of repair options

·   What might happen if you don’t follow the recommended actions


Home Condition Report Bishop’s Waltham

Even if you feel confident that the property should be problem-free, it’s wise to get a professional to check it over. A Level 1 Survey or Home Condition Report is the least expensive survey option, best for new properties, giving you peace of mind that there are no structural problems.


When we carry out a Home Condition Report in Bishop’s Waltham, we put together a simple overview of the property. It includes traffic light ratings to concisely tell you everything you need to know as you proceed with your purchase.  


Limited Defect Report Bishop’s Waltham

Many clients aren’t interested in full property surveys: they simply want an expert’s opinion on an individual issue. We are always delighted to help with a Limited Defect Report, which investigates problems such as a crack, patch of damp, uneven roof or infestation.


If you’d like to better understand a specific problem, we will carry out a diagnostic survey including recommendations for the next steps. Whether it’s for your current property or somewhere you’re considering: get in touch to discuss whether a Limited Defect Report could be helpful as you plan your next steps.


Party Wall Surveying Bishop’s Waltham

We like to think that most neighbours get on most of the time. However, tensions can rise when works are planned at a border, and it can be helpful to get advice from a surveyor skilled in The Party Wall Etc. Act 1996 and party wall disputes.

As chartered surveyors in Bishop’s Waltham, we are able to carry out impartial investigations whether it is you or your neighbour planning works. Our reports can help clear up misunderstandings and keep your relationship with your neighbours on good terms.
