HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Olney and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Olney property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give a thorough analysis of the Olney property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Olney Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Olney building survey look for any flooding damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Olney and nationwide, is a serious concern for owners. Both house purchasers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via incorrectly fitted window frames. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

English Heritage

We are intending to buy a building close to Olney Bridge , will this affect the property's value?

Olney Bridge is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance often increase the attractiveness of an area. Other nearby sites of importance are Roman Site At Olney.. The RICS valuer will consider all local criteria during the homebuyer report in Olney. See the English Heritage website for further details on Olney Bridge.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. Are there any major problems that we should be aware of?

From Swaledale Fossil Limestone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including spalling brick affect many stone-walled Olney properties. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Olney properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. H G Clarke & Son, 2 High Street, Weston Underwood, Olney, Buckinghamshire, MK46 5JS, which quarries Chalk, for details. Call 01234 712047 for more information.
