Top tips for a Runcorn Home Buyers Survey


Up until the late 18th, Runcorn was a small village in Halton, Cheshire. After the industrial revolution it grew and is now considered an industrial town. A major landmark is Halton Castle, that is thought to have been built in the 15th century with only the ruins remaining today. In 1598 Seneschal’s House was built which still stands today.

There is a variety of architecture in Runcorn. Some Victorian houses lie on Norfolk street and some Edwardian houses on Wicksten Drive. There are a range of detached, semi-detached and terrace houses available on these streets. A new development in Runcorn is Hatters Park which has 3 and 4 bedroom modern homes. Most of these are detached houses.

Can you attend the Survey with the surveyor?

Most surveyors do not allow the client on site whilst carrying out their inspection. They have a long list of defects that they need to check for and they cannot be distracted from the job in hand as they can be held to account for any missed defects.

The surveyors' professional indemnity insurance does not cover for bringing any third party on site with them while they are completing their inspection, therefore, in the event of any damage being sited by a vendor while the survey is taking place, the surveyor would be liable and uninsured.

On the day of the survey if you have any concerns you can make the surveyor aware of this so they can pay special attention to these areas during their inspection.
