Top tips for a Oldham Home Buyers Survey


Oldham boomed during the Industrial Revolution. The textile industry was the driving force behind the population increase and therefore, with it, increased property construction in Oldham. 

The oldest property in Oldham is Hathershaw Hall. It is a 16th-17th century Grade II listed building. The present structure is the single surviving range of a once considerably larger manor house. 

Though of mixed sizes, most residential buildings in Oldham are of relatively standard construction with them being built during the 18th century up until the present date. There are now many shared ownership schemes and Help to Buy properties in Oldham.

With the rise of Help to Buy there has been a boom in new build properties in the areas of Sholver, Bardsley and Spring Hill. 

We would always advise appointing one of our RICS Chartered Surveyors to compile a Snagging Report on any new build houses. A Snagging Report will evaluate the build quality of everything in the property, rating it from poor/good/excellent, you are then able to submit this to the developers to ensure they rectify any issues.
Coal mining was prominent in this area from as early as the 16th century. 

A recent coal mining property search on Henry Street, Littleborough has shown there are still signs of previous coal mining in the area. When this is flagged up, it is always worthwhile to check thoroughly for subsidence because the ground stability in the area could have been compromised. 

If you do discover serious signs of this most destructive property defect, you should always follow up with a specialised Subsidence Survey with a Structural Engineer to confirm there are no underlying problems in the future.
With the Industrial Revolution property boom came pre-19th century residential buildings. 

We would always advise getting a Level 3 Building Survey on properties older than 1920 as the broader scope in this highest level of visual inspections is better suited to older style properties which have, for example, frequently been extensively refurbished and/or extended. 

Your experienced RICS surveyor inspects the entire property (including the grounds) for any defects that would need repair work or improvements.

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