HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Buckingham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Buckingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Buckingham property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the Buckingham surveyor give details on the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your qualified surveyor will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the gas pipe route at the building, as well as gas related appliances/installations for example - chimney breasts or flues. The external fittings won't be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe certified Buckinghamshire based local companies include Buckingham Gas of 27 Waine Close, Buckingham, Buckinghamshire Tel. 07968583911 and Sam Roberts Plumbing And Heating of 1, Grange Close, Twyford, Buckingham Tel. 01296733701.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords are obligated to carry out appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would be advised to look out for when buying a flat in Buckingham inside a conservation area?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Buckingham surveyors must have relevant knowledge of local factors and the effect may have with the building. House prices will probably be more than prices outside the area owing to them resisting change. However a large number have fallen into a state e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors are expected report if the home is possibly is so classified and Section I of your Buckingham Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building may be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer. Lorimers are a local firm situated at 25-26 West Street, Aylesbury Vale, Buckinghamshire, MK18 1HF might be able to advise further. Tel: 01280 812132

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a house in Buckingham, does the HomeBuyer Report investigate possible flooding damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: www.metoffice.gov.uk); sensible owners and buyers in Buckingham are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a property in Buckingham through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. The RICS surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
