Top tips for a Milton Keynes Home Buyers Survey


Milton Keynes has period homes from the time that the area consisted of a number of towns and villages, and modern properties.

Stony Stratford, Woburn and Olney have many of these period homes and Wolverton has many Victorian terrace houses.

There are many thousand new build houses under construction in Broughton Gate and Brooklands. Many of these, such as Plantain Court and Columbia Place in Cambell Park, offer shared ownership resale.

Dwellings in the vicinity of Grand Union Canal, which snakes around the northern borders of Milton Keynes from the west and then passes through it, in streets such as Simpson Road and Grove Way, are subject to flood warnings and alerts.

This is also the case for homes near to the River Ouzel and the River Great Ouse.

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 new build developments in Milton Keynes. New Build properties should come with a new build insurance guarantee.

The surveyor will inform you to check that you have sight of the guarantee. Most commonly the insurance is through NHBC or Zurich, or a similar insurance provider.
Natural slate is used frequently for properties in and around Milton Keynes. They are formed by very thin layers of rock being bonded together. Poorer quality slates may contain impurities which react with water and force the layers apart. This “delaminating” is common on the underside of the slates. Slate can last anything up to 100 years or more depending on the quality, source, thickness and the skill with which it was cut. They are normally held by nails via holes drilled either close to one end or at the centres and are more vulnerable to gale damage.

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 non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in Milton Keynes.

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.

What should you do when the surveyor finds a defect that affects the property price?

This is a very difficult situation to be in. You have agreed a price with the seller not knowing of this issue and now have the issue of needing to revisit your offer.

The best advice is to inform the seller/estate agent of the issue you have uncovered, provide the specific information from the report from your Building Surveyor (not the full report) and then discuss a solution that accounts for the repair works.
