HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Old Stratford and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Old Stratford property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Old Stratford property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a property in the centre of MK19 priced at £103, 300. What things does a Old Stratford RICS chartered surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Old Stratford ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on the price of property for example the existence of damp or the number of bathrooms. It can help to consider flat values achieved in Old Stratford at the same time for similar properties. The mean flat price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £95, 000, which is £8, 300 less than the asking price (£229, 389 was the blended house/flat average). 32, Brookside Close, Old Stratford, Milton Keynes, South Northamptonshire, Northamptonshire, MK19 6BE was purchased for £95, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get a formal property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an integral

component. Your RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a house surveyor check indications of flooding damage?

The lives of many property owners in Old Stratford and across the UK have been impacted by floods, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a property in Old Stratford through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property in Old Stratford lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The house surveyor may ask the estate agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with Beer stone walls. Are there specific potential issues to consider?

Poorly pointed or installed window frames can often cause problems for houses with stone walls. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Repair advice often includes clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
