Surveyor in Aylesbury – Experienced & Best Value

Building Survey - Banner for Modern Homes

At Alan Rance Surveyors we have years of experience providing clients in Aylesbury with everything from Home Condition Surveys to Building Surveys and Energy Performance Certificates (EPC). Whether you are purchasing a new family home or a buy-to-let flat, it is vital to have as much information as possible about the property you are buying. We strive to provide you with that information in the form of highly detailed surveys and reports.

For homes built relatively recently we also offer a Modern Home Survey. Some homebuyers believe that a more modern property does not require a survey, but this can be a mistake. The age of the construction does not make any guarantees, and it is just as important to be aware of any defects and potential issues with your property.

Our surveys offer the best value for money, with detailed reports available at highly competitive prices. Please contact us today if you are interested in having any kind of survey carried out.

Properties in Aylesbury

Aylesbury is becoming renowned as one of Buckinghamshire’s most sought-after locations for homeowners. Awarded ‘garden town’ status in January 2017, the town saw house prices rise 21.5% across 2016. These are undoubtedly exciting times for the town and it is attracting everyone from young families to commuters.

The A41 connects Aylesbury with London, and it is also less than an hour’s drive to large towns and cities including Oxford, Milton Keynes, Luton and Hemel Hempstead. Additionally, the town is served by two train stations, the larger of which is the terminus on the London to Aylesbury line from London Marylebone. It is easy to see why more and more people are choosing to buy property here.

It is shocking to realise that around 70% of homebuyers choose not to commission any form of independent survey on the property they purchase. The consumer group Which? estimates that having a condition report carried out could save homeowners as much as £10,000. So, having a Home Condition Survey carried out represents incredible value for money.

Aylesbury Case Study – Surveying a Property in Aylesbury

Aylesbury Case Study

We were able to uncover a number of issue and potential problems with this property in Aylesbury. The brickwork above the lounge window had cracked and dropped – this has been repointed unsuccessfully. This meant that it would require reinforcing and being repointed properly.

Additionally, we found a potential issue surrounding the flashing at the base of the front stack at the junction with the roof stacks. It was made of mortar, which is liable to crack and fail. While the mortar was in reasonable condition at the time of the survey, we recommended replacing the flashing with lead or a similar material.

Some of the walls required damp treatment as well as re-plastering – the dining room walls had loose plaster. We also discovered that the bottom of the chimney stack is wet in the sitting room. The plaster has cracked above the enclosed stove in the sitting room this needs to be further investigated and the flue does not seem to be clearing the flue gases. All solid fuel appliances should be installed and maintained by a HETAS approved engineer.
