Top tips for a High Wycombe Home Buyers Survey


High Wycombe was substantially rebuilt from 1932, particularly the Newland area. St Mary's Street and the area around it have some excellent Georgian and Victorian properties. The town centre was rebuilt in the 1960s.

The High Street, however, has a number of 18th and 19th century buildings. It ends at the colonnaded Guildhall that was built in 1757 and renovated in 1859. The small octagonal-shaped Cornmarket opposite, known locally as the Pepper Pot, was rebuilt in 1761. The large parish church of All Saints[71] was founded in 1086, enlarged in the 18th century and extensively restored in 1889.

Frogmore still has some surviving Victorian buildings. There are larger blocks of flats built in the recent era around Queen Alexandra Road to accommodate the students who attend Buckinghamshire New University.

New builds are available in Daws Hill Lane, for example Doolittle Village. A large number are modern terrace houses and town houses.

Properties in High Wycombe which are built near the River Wye, such as in Victoria Street and Oakridge Road, 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).
There are a number of environmental factors that can effect a property in High Wycome, one of which is the close proximity of the property to an area of environmental or historical importance.

This was flagged in a recent Environmental Report for Scholars Rise, Stokenchurch, High Wycombe, HP14 3FL, as the property was built on the Chilterns which was designated on the 30th March 1990 as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
In section E2 of the HomeBuyer Report, the surveyor will review the roof coverings. This is completed through an inspection of accessible parts up to 3m and with the use of binoculars.

An example of the information included from a survey in City Road, Radnage, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP14 4DW is "The main roof is of a traditional pitched design formed in a cut timber frame with a ridge, purlins and rafters, all clad with concrete tiles. The covering appears in reasonable condition to type and age. The underlining provided to the underside of the roof covering appears in reasonable condition to type and age. The roof structure is generally performing its function adequately and there is no deflection, sagging or any defects noted and no significant repair work necessary".

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).

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you get a mortgage your mortgage lender requires you to pay for a survey valuation of the property. The aim of this survey is to give the mortgage lender reassurance that the property is worth what you are paying. Although you pay for the mortgage valuation survey, it belongs to the mortgage lender and often you won't be allowed to see it.


It is paramount that when buying a property in High Wycombe, or you get your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as subsidence can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.

A HomeBuyer Survey will give you reassurance to buy your new home without worrying about what is in the closet. If you aren't sure what you should do or which HomeBuyer Survey to get call us on 0333 344 3234 and we'll talk you through the options - this is what we do!
