Top tips for a Altrincham Home Buyers Survey


Altrincham has many listed buildings; these give testament to the diversity of construction in the last few hundred years but also the build quality. One such building from the Georgian period is the Dunham Massey Hall (which has a deer park) which is Grade I listed. The Victorian Stamford Park, opened to the public in 1880, is listed as Grade II on the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.

Numerous houses were built by various developers in the earlier part of the 20th century, most of which are relatively standard construction detached, semi-detached and terraced dwellings, such as can be found in Ashley Road, Bowdon and Bollin Drive, Timperley.

Altrincham was bombed heavily by the Luftwaffe during the second world war, however, as with much of the UK, the post-war economic boom ushered large numbers of house construction projects and in the 1960s, the town centre was rebuilt.
There are many modern developments also, such as the detached houses in Hartley Road.

Some properties in the Altrincham area are at risk of possible river water and surface water flooding.

Certain properties in Altrincham are in a local authority area where a proposal for an extension to the Greater Manchester Metrolink through Trafford (the Trafford Park Line) was lodged. A recent Local Authority Search carried out for a property in Weldon Road, Altrincham revealed this. These kind of developments can cause disruption in the shorter term as they are constructed.

What’s the difference between the HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

The HomeBuyer Report is a survey carried out on smaller properties of a simpler design such as purpose built flats, bungalows, maisonettes and post-1950s houses of standard construction. The HomeBuyer Report comes in a standard format and can give a great general view regarding a property's construction and condition.

In contrast, Building Surveys are bespoke and better suited to larger and/or older properties where the original construction material may have degraded and requires further commenting on outside of the scope of a HomeBuyer Report.
