Surveyor in Aylesbury – Experienced & Best Value

Building Survey in Aylesbury

Alan Rance Surveyors have been working in Aylesbury and the surrounding area for over 30 years, providing clients with a wealth of professional surveying services including:

Whether you are looking to buy a new family home or investing in a buy-to-let property, it is essential to know the key facts about the property’s condition before you proceed with the purchase. At Alan Rance Surveyors, we offer highly detailed building defect reports to make this possible.

Even modern properties benefit from a survey, since the age of construction does not guarantee structural integrity. Alan Rance Surveyors offer home surveys for modern and period buildings to highlight any defects and potential issues with any property you are thinking of investing in.

With detailed reports available at highly competitive prices, our surveys provide excellent value for money. Please contact us today if you are interested in a building survey in Aylesbury or the surrounding area.


One of Buckinghamshire’s most sought after locations, popular with commuters and young families, Aylesbury was awarded ‘garden town’ status in January 2017, and property prices have remained relatively stable since then. Aylesbury is connected to London via the A41 and is also less than an hour’s drive away from Oxford, Milton Keynes, Luton and Hemel Hempstead. The town is served by two train stations, the larger of which terminates here from London Marylebone.

As building surveyors, it concerns us greatly that 2/3 of homebuyers in the UK decide not to arrange any form of independent survey on the property they purchase. The consumer group Which? estimates that having a home survey carried out could save homeowners as much as £10,000, which makes a Home Condition Report or Building Survey incredible value for money.

Aylesbury Case Study


A recent home survey of this property in Aylesbury uncovered a number of issues. The brickwork above the lounge window had cracked and dropped, and had been repointed unsuccessfully. In order to be properly restored, the brickwork would require reinforcing and professional repointing.

We also found a potential issue with the flashing at the base of the front chimney stack at the junction with the roof. 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 that the flashing should be replaced with lead or a similar material.

Some of the walls required damp treatment and re-plastering – there was loose plaster on the dining room walls. We also discovered that the bottom of the chimney stack in the dining room was wet. The plaster had cracked above the enclosed stove in the sitting room, which needed further investigation and the flue did not seem to be clearing the flue gases. We recommended that all solid fuel appliances should be installed and maintained by a HETAS approved engineer.
