HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Milton Keynes and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Milton Keynes property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Milton Keynes property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 15th Century warehouse conversion in Milton Keynes. What impact will the building's slate roof have on regular maintenance?

There is a property in MK6 on for £156, 786. What different issues will your Milton Keynes chartered surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Milton Keynes ?

One method is to compare with the prices of flat achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £135, 786, which is £21, 000 less than the selling price and the flat/house average was £186, 699. 475, Flat 403, Lower Twelfth Street, Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes, MK9 3PW a leasehold flat recently sold for £160, 000 .
