HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Amersham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Amersham property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we look into drainage? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact heavy rain can have on your property is not given enough thought by home buyers. If you have investigated the property in on a sunny day, problems are unlikely to be visible, and may lead to warped floorboards or beams. Whether buying in Amersham or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 17th Century gatehouse in Amersham. What effect will the house's architecture have on repairs?

A building's age can be problematic, and Amersham property built using traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. If you plan to make alterations to a period house, discuss options with your surveyor for more information. Wychert is a walling material made from straw and white clay, examples of this method are common to Amersham and across Buckinghamshire.
