Top tips for a Gerrards Cross Home Buyers Survey


Gerrards Cross is an affluent town in the South Bucks district of Buckinghamshire, a home county to the west of the Greater London Area. It hosts Bulstrode Park Camp, a preserved area of land which was an Iron Age fortified encampment. It didn't exist in the formal sense until the mid-19th century. Its St James parich church was built in 1861.

You can find the occasional Georgian property, such as the houses in Hedgerley Lane. There are also Victorian properties such as the cottages in Oxford Road and the terrace houses in Hedgerley Lane and there are many detached properties from many eras, such as the 1930s houses in Birchdale and in Denham Lane. 

There are Victorian/Edwardian semi-detached properties and terraces in South View Road and large modern detached houses in Scholars Place, South Park Drive.

New build developments include the detached houses in Glade In The Spinney and in Gold Hill North and the apartments in Scholar's Place, South Park Drive.

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.

Does the Building Survey check the electrics and boiler?

The Building Survey is a defect report and will highlight any visual issues such as damp, subsidence and asbestos.

The surveyor will not carry out specialist inspections other than normal operation in everyday use, for example, switching lights on and off and turning the heating on and off.

If the surveyor feels that the electrics and boiler need further investigation then they will recommend that you get an electrician or engineer into the property to carry out an intrusive assessment.
