Top tips for a Bury Home Buyers Survey

Bury is most famously known for the Bury Market but the properties in the area didn’t boom until the Industrial Revolution. As such most buildings are 18th, 19th, 20th and present century. 

Moyses Hall Museum is probably the oldest building in Bury St Edmunds, the Hall dates to 1180 and now houses a museum of local history. The Hall is one of the oldest domestic buildings in England, and has served as a police station, gaol, inn, and dwelling. 

In recent years there has been a massive rise in new build properties in the area with help to buy becoming a great way to buy your first property. A snagging survey will ensure your new build is in perfect condition as you would expect a newly build property to be.

Properties in south Bury could be affected by subsidence as many have been built in areas where coal mining historically took place. 

A RICS Surveyor will be able to check for suspicions of these defects and advise on a course of action. It is always worth a follow up survey by a structural engineer if your RICS surveyor highlights signs of subsidence such as cracks in the walls.

With most properties in Bury being built in the Industrial Revolution a lot of houses are 18th century buildings and require a more in-depth survey. We would always recommend a Level 3 Building Survey by one of our RICS certified surveyors. 

The added detail you would get from the Building Survey is more suited to properties over 100 years old which have often, for example, been extended and/or refurbished. Victorian buildings benefit from the highest-level visual inspection and will give insight into the defects that might be hidden.
Properties located near the River Irwell may be affected by flooding and as such should be inspected for signs of damp and ensure utilities are unaffected. 

Where flooding occurs, it is important to note if it will or has affected the utilities and you should always ensure that they are working correctly especially the electricals.

Damp is another after affect of flooding and signs of it should always be identified when purchasing a new property. Our RICS surveyor is trained in finding suspicions of damp and can advise if you require a specialist damp surveyor.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Bury and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Bury's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
