About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Stokenchurch

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 .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this Edwardian property is in poor condition - what should we do? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built flats demonstrate several benefits, but they will also indicate numerous defects. Any such issues ought to be reported on, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One frequently reported defect is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Clarence Construction at 95 Clarence Rd, Sutton, SM1 1RJ on 020 8642 6970.

Buyers in Stokenchurch should consider that a range of styles and techniques feature in construction throughout Stokenchurch. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. Consider renegotiating the price of the Stokenchurch property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would be advised to look out for when buying a flat in Stokenchurch in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local considerations and any connection may have on the property and its value. The value of homes is generally more than prices outside the area due to them being largely unspoilt However a growing number have been neglected and are in poor condition e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are trained to note whether the location looks to be classified as such and Section I of a Stokenchurch Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out during the legal process. Unsympathetic extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Stokenchurch, and think we saw signs of pests in the lounge. What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This concern should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.
