Top tips for a Cheshire Home Buyers Survey


Cheshire's distinctive local red sandstone has been used for many monumental and ecclesiastical buildings throughout the county: for example, the medieval Beeston Castle, Chester Cathedral and numerous parish churches.

Many surviving buildings from the 15th to 17th centuries are timbered, particularly in the southern part of the county. Notable examples include the moated manor house Little Moreton Hall, dating from around 1450, and many commercial and residential buildings in Chester, Nantwich and surrounding villages.

Early brick buildings include Peover Hall near Macclesfield (1585), Tattenhall Hall (pre-1622), and the Pied Bull Hotel in Chester (17th-century). From the 18th century, orange, red or brown brick became the predominant building material used in Cheshire, although earlier buildings are often faced or dressed with stone. Examples from the Victorian period onwards often employ distinctive brick detailing, such as brick patterning and ornate chimney stacks and gables. Notable examples include Arley Hall near Northwich, Willington Hall[33] near Chester (both by Nantwich architect George Latham) and Overleigh Lodge, Chester.

You can find many more modern – and standard – types of buildings in the larger towns such as Warrington, Runcorn and Crewe, with many semi-detached, detached and terraced properties built in the 1930s and onwards with a number of council estates.

Properties in Cheshire which are built in close proximity to the coast and to the Rivers Churnet, Tean, Sow and Penk, in streets such as Churnet View Road and St Michaels Road, are in an area where flood warnings and flood alerts are issued 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Cheshire, particularly to its west, including streets such as Shotton Road, Old Aston Hill and Holywell Road (around the village of Ewloe), are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of greater than 30% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Some parts of Cheshire, particularly around the area of Sandbach, may have properties affected by the High Speed 2 (HS2) route. This was revealed in a Local Authority Search for a property in CW11 4JP. Click to find out more about what is contained within Local Authority Searches.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered Surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Cheshire.

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.

The Home Buyer Survey will report on issues found, however you need to make sure that you choose the right Home Buyer Survey for your property because some defects require further detail and this is best served by booking a Building Survey.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

Does your surveyor check the chimney?

If you're buying a period property which features a chimney you will want to ensure there are no defects or issues with pointing that may cause you issues in the future.

Your RICS surveyor will assess the exterior of a chimney usually from ground level or a nearby vantage point/accessible flat roof to note any issues visible and advise accordingly.

Internally your surveyor will visually check for any signs of structural movement and that the flue is clear, however, this is only possible if accessible.

You should note, however, that surveyors are not structural engineers and so they may advise a further inspection is carried out by such a suitable specialist if suspicions of defects are noted.
