Home Buyers Survey in Buckingham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Buckingham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Buckingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Buckingham property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a cottage in Buckingham. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Older construction methods and materials can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Buckingham property built using traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

Mixed from clay and straw, wychert gives many old buildings in the county their distinctive white appearance. Many parts of Buckinghamshire, including near Buckingham, display examples of wychert building. Built in around 1523, 12-16 Stratford Street Cottages in Buckingham is an example of a traditional Medieval-period house.
