Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Princes Risborough


Princes Risborough has had settlement dating back to before the 1086 Domesday survey.

The earliest remaining buildings are around Church Street and Market Square and date back to the 15th to 17th centuries. The town's population did not significantly expand until the late part of the 20th century, even though the railway arrived in the mid-19th century. Lining the High Street are tight knit ranges of 18th century, Georgian and Victorian buildings, executed in a variety of traditional materials.

The predominant style of building is two storey, with some the height of a cottage, and some taller as befitting their status when built. Most are red brick with tile or slate roofs. Some good shopfronts remain, but most are modern. There are examples of flared or vitrified header bond on some of facades of the 18th century buildings, a high status indicator.

There are any number of 20th century properties in the town, ranging from private estates to those muncipally built.

There are also a number of new build developments, from the 1 and 2 bedroom flats and 2,3 and 4 bedroom houses of Goodearl Place to the detached homes in Poppy Road.

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 asbestos testing included in my survey? Is the removal cost also quoted?

No, what the surveyor will do is let you know within the report that there are signs of asbestos based on their visual inspection and of the property's general style and age. If there are suspicions of asbestos you would be advised to get an asbestos specialist to test the grade of the asbestos within the property.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Princes Risborough and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards. All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory. At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
