Top tips for a Burnham Home Buyers Survey


Burnham is a village in Buckinghamshire which has a contemplative order of Church of England Augustinian nuns which is based in the restored remains of an original 1265 Benedictine Abbey, and a parish church – St Peter (Anglican) – which dates in part back to the 12th century.

The village grew a little when the railway arrived in 1899 and has a mix of period, 20th century and modern properties. You can find large detached homes in Green Lane, Grove Road and Hitcham Road; some of these are Victorian, others are modern rebuilds sometimes in period style.

You can find 1920s-1950s semi-detached properties in Haymill Road and Chiltern Road.

New build developments include new flat developments in nearby Farnham Royal, among others.

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 Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Burnham.

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.

My estate agent told me I don’t need a survey

Fortunately we only come across this on occasion. As we know, English Law puts the emphasis on the buyer in a conveyancing transaction to complete all reasonable checks on the property prior to exchange.

This is explained by the legal term caveat emptor  which is the principle that the buyer alone is responsible for checking the quality and suitability of goods before a purchase is made.

Although the estate agent’s intentions may be pure in advising against a survey, in the event of a buyer moving into a property and finding that there are defects that would have been identified in the simplest of RICS surveyor checks, there is no recourse to the estate agent after the fact.

If the surveyor does not identify any significant defects, then the buyer can complete the purchase with peace of mind, however if defects are identified then an informed decision can be made on whether to proceed with the purchase prior to being contractually tied in.

A survey does also on occasion provide an opportunity to renegotiate on price based on newly identified problems not spotted on first inspection.

An estate agent is paid on completion as is the vendor therefore their drivers for additional property checks are very different to those of the buyers’.
