About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Great Linford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Great Linford and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Great Linford property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Great Linford property's condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the building in Great Linford we're buying, but we are not certain. Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Any questions about pests affecting a Great Linford building may not be asked by the lawyer. This problem should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for insect infestation may include chemical treatment. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like NBC Bird & Pest Solutions (Northampton Coventry), 22 Willowford, Bancroft Park, Milton Keynes, MK13 0RH, or call them on 0190 877 0450.

House Prices

I am going to buy a detached house in Great Linford (MK15) for around £214, 520. What will the Great Linford RICS chartered surveyor take into account in the process of a survey ?

There are many factors that might affect property values ranging from anti social neighbours to whether the property is overlooked. You can try to compare with prices recorded in the same area for similar houses.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £199, 820, which is £14, 700 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The combined house/flat average was £190, 180. 5A, Vermont Place, Tongwell, Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes, MK15 8JA a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £80, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get an accurate home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard. Your local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a house in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous refuse. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include structurally instability. Health issues for example abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Milton Keynes Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Great Linford which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just smooth type of render. Typically it is applied to brick hardens to a smooth and even finish. Stucco is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian and Regency buildings. The composition is similar to plaster and mortar in its nature. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Great Linford Homebuyer Reports commonly focus on issues which might include trapped moisture leading to internal damp problems.

Another example of problems might include when the application is taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-coating problems may be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.
