HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Stokenchurch and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Stokenchurch property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Stokenchurch property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a property proximate to West Wycombe Shooting Ground near Park Lane and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. domestic waste. Thousands of sites affect 100, 000's people in England and Wales including Stokenchurch. Worries include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health issues such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Stokenchurch RICS surveyors will consider structural defects connected with the site. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark database and South Oxfordshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the period property I am hoping to lease I think we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets, will a Stokenchurch survey go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Stokenchurch your surveyor should mention the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This will include a by sight check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the superficial sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other things, for example confirming the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or whether there are residual circuit breakers (RCD). Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an older renovated farmhouse in Stokenchurch. What impact will the thatched roof have on maintenance?

Some purchasers hope to own a home with character. A building's age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Stokenchurch houses built using traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings.

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