Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Macclesfield


Macclesfield expanded greatly as a town in the mid-18th century with the building of the first silk mill and has a number of properties dating back to this time which are Neoclassical or Georgian (such as Cumberland House and Jordangate House) in style.

The Victorian era left its mark on the architectural style of the churches and public buildings, such as Regency Mill and Upton Grange, as they changed to Gothic Revival. The Militia Barracks was constructed in the late 1850s and Parkside Hospital opened in 1871 (it was originally an asylum). The War Memorial, a listed structure, was built in the 20th century.

The town standard properties built during the 20th century to cater for the population expansion. There are new build developments in the area such as the detached houses and barn conversions around Springwood Way and Cold Harbor Farm in Tytherington.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you buy a home with a mortgage your Mortgage Lender requires you to get a mortgage valuation to assess how much your property is actually worth. You have to pay for this survey and often you may think this is also a structural assessment to identify defects. Sadly the mortgage valuation is just for the mortgage lender which means you need to get your own independent survey of the property that's caught your eye in Macclesfield to make sure there aren't any defects.

There is some confusion as the mortgage valuation is often referred to as a survey and so many buyers assume this is what is meant by 'have you done your survey?' It is important that when buying a property in Macclesfield that you arrange your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property. The two types of HomeBuyers survey to choose from are the HomeBuyers Report or the Building Survey. Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. The costs of underpinning a property due to subsidence run into the £10,000s so it is important to get a survey to check for this type of defect. Get your HomeBuyers Survey - call 0333 344 3234.
