Properties in Amersham which are built next to the River Misbourne, such as those to the north of Amersham's old town in roads such as High Street, Church Street and The Broadway, are subject to flood warnings and alerts from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Amersham, including streets such as Hundred Acres Lane and Sheepfold Lane, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1 – 3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Levels of noise pollution from road traffic in the Amersham area are at their highest around the roads of Whielden Lane/A404, London Road East/A355 and the A413, affecting nearby streets such as Fieldway and Piggotts Orchard.

BuckinghamshireBuckinghamshire is a county which touches the western edges of the Greater London Area and is mainly rural in aspect. Many of the towns and villages on the eastern edges of the county serve as commuter dormitories for London workers, such as Amersham, Chesham and the Chalfonts. The section of the Chiltern Line, which links Aylesbury with London Marylebone via Amersham, has streamlined this daily journey for many workers in the City of London. Buckinghamshire's county town is Buckingham, but there are a number of larger settlements such as High Wycombe and Aylesbury. 

There is considerable affluence in many parts of the county, such as around Fulmer, Gerrards Cross, Farnham Common and Stoke Poges. Denham Golf Club, which has its own station on the Chiltern Line, is the haunt of many celebrities who have dwellings in the area. The county is the site of the first modern private university to receive a charter, the University of Buckingham. Buckinghamshire has number of areas of outstanding natural beauty, such as Burnham Beeches and the Chilterns (including the Chess Valley).

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Amersham.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Mortgage lenders in England and Wales require you to get a valuation for the property in Amersham you are buying so that they can gauge whether the amount you are paying is appropriate. This survey is called a Mortgage Valuation. The mortgage valuation is paid for by you but the results aren't always shared with you as the survey actually belongs to the lender. Furthermore, it doesn't include any survey into potential defects or structural issues that are too often found in properties.

There is also a degree of confusion because the mortgage valuation is referred to as a survey and a large number of buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Amersham that you arrange your own HomeBuyers survey that reports on defects or potential issues a property has; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you having to pay out money for any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as rising damp can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not corrected.


The average cost for HomeBuyers for fixing works to their property after purchase is just under £2,000, and when some defects affect the resale value of your home, getting an independent HomeBuyers Survey makes a lot of sense, financial and otherwise. Call us on 0333 344 3234 to get the best HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Amersham.
