Surveyor in Aylesbury – Experienced & Best Value

Building Survey - Banner for Modern Homes

Alan Rance Surveyors has been working in and around the Aylesbury area for over 30 years, providing clients with Home Condition Reports, Building Surveys, Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)s, building damp surveys and more.

Whether you are purchasing a new family home or investing in a buy-to-let apartment, it is essential that you have all of the key information about the property’s condition before you proceed. At Alan Rance Surveyors, we offer highly detailed building defect reports to make this possible.

Even modern properties benefit from home surveys, as the age of construction does not make any guarantees about its structural condition. To assist these buyers in making an informed decision about purchasing a modern property, Alan Rance Surveyors offers Home Condition Surveys, which highlight any defects and potential issues with the building.

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 building survey carried out in Aylesbury or the surrounding area.

PROPERTIES IN AYLESBURY

Renowned as one of Buckinghamshire’s most sought-after locations, Aylesbury was awarded ‘garden town’ status in January 2017, and house prices have risen by 1.14% since then end of 2017. These are undoubtedly exciting times for the town and Aylesbury is attracting everyone from young families to commuters.

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. 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.

As building surveyors, we find it concerning that around 70% of homebuyers decide not to arrange any form of independent survey on the property they purchase. The consumer group Which? estimates that having a home-buying survey carried out could save homeowners as much as £10,000. So, commissioning a Home Condition Report or Building Survey represents incredible value for money.

AYLESBURY CASE STUDY – SURVEYING A PROPERTY IN AYLESBURY

Aylesbury Case Study

We were able to uncover a number of issues with this property in Aylesbury. The brickwork above the lounge window had cracked and dropped, and had been repointed unsuccessfully. 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 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.
