HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Great Missenden and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Great Missenden property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Great Missenden property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property generate high upkeep costs for buyers? Are there specific potential issues to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Mountcharles Sandstone to Rockingstone Sandstone. Defects such as weathered stone affect many stone-walled Great Missenden buildings.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Purchasers renovating Great Missenden buildings should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Great Missenden, you can contact local suppliers.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Dunton Brothers Ltd, Blackwell Hall Lane, Ley Hill, Chesham, Buckinghamshire, HP5 1TN, which quarries Clay & Shale, for details. Call 01494 772111 for more information.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an old farmstead. What impact will the construction have on upkeep?

A building's age can create issues for homeowners. Houses constructed with traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.

One example of traditional building methods is Wychert. This mixture of clay and straw is extremely rare in more modern homes. Common near Great Missenden and throughout Buckinghamshire, this method of building requires particular care to maintain.

Built in the 15th century, Abbey Farm in Great Missenden is a fine example of a Medieval-period abbey gatehouse.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I need to be conscious of if purchasing a home in Great Missenden in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local authority. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local area issues and the bearing they have on the building and its value. Property Prices is, more often than not, higher because of the areas retaining their original character. However many areas have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors will advise whether the building is possibly is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic modifications to the building may be noted but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser. Lennons Solicitors Ltd are a local firm situated at Chess Chambers, Chiltern, Buckinghamshire, HP5 1EG should be prepared to advise further. Tel: 01494 773 377
