HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Chesham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Chesham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Chesham property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a farmstead. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Some purchasers would like to own property with real personality. For traditionally-built Chesham property, age, however, can be problematic. Houses built using traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could result in higher ongoing expenses.If the residence you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the surveyor for more detail.

One example of traditional building methods is Wychert. This mixture of clay and straw is extremely rare in more modern homes. Examples of wychert building can be found in Chesham and throughout Buckinghamshire.

English Heritage

We are intending to buy a property near Hawridge Court Ringwork , will this affect the property's value?

Hawridge Court Ringwork is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest can add to the desirability of an area. A RICS surveyor will include all local factors during the home buyers survey in Chesham. Refer to the English Heritage site for more details on Hawridge Court Ringwork.

Stone block wall damage

Can structures partially constructed with stone generate lots of maintenance costs for the buyer? Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include algae.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Bovingdon Brickworks Quarry, Pudds Cross, Ley Hill Road, Bovingdon, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, HP3 0NW for details. Call 01442 833176 for more information.
