Top tips for a Manchester Home Buyers Survey


Manchester is a major city in the northwest of England and its history goes at least back to Roman times. It expanded from a township to a city at the turn of the 19th century and with the textile industry which grew rapidly in the period of the Industrial Revolution.

Manchester Cathedral dates back originally to 1421. Manchester's buildings display a variety of architectural styles, ranging from Victorian to contemporary architecture. The widespread use of red brick characterises the city, much of the architecture of which harks back to its days as a global centre for the cotton trade.

Manchester also has a number of skyscrapers built during the 1960s and 1970s, the tallest of which was the CIS Tower located near Manchester Victoria station until the Beetham Tower was completed in 2006.

Manchester's centre was heavily bombed during the second world war, which caused plenty of housebuilding to occur after the war and from the 1950s to the 1970s, with many standard construction semi-detached houses and terrace houses being built.

There are numerous new developments in and around Manchester and its suburbs including those you can find in Pendleton, Gorton, Oldham, Middleton and Atherton.

Properties in Manchester which are built in close proximity to the River Irwell, in streets like Lower Broughton Road and Harrison Street, are subject to flood warnings and alerts 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 Manchester, including streets such as Vesta Street and Epworth Street, 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 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are considering buying a property in Manchester, incredibly important.

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.

If the HomeBuyers Survey flags up any of these defects in your property in Manchester then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved.

If you are concerned about your property has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a HomeBuyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

How long does it take to compile a survey report?

On the day of the inspection the surveyor will attend the property and complete your chosen survey; either a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey. Once they are back in the office the same evening they will give you a call to run through any major issues found during the inspection (some surveyors don't offer this service however with us this comes as standard).

The surveyor will then email the report to you five working days after the survey has taken place. If the surveyor feels the report is going to take him longer to type up due to the detail included then they’ll advise you of when the survey report will be made available.
