Top tips for a Rochdale Home Buyers Survey

For Rochdale and in part Lancashire the flood that was the Industrial Revolution changed the surrounding areas with a boom housing development.

The Town Hall is a Victorian-era building in Rochdale. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building. It was built in the Gothic Revival style from the 18th century. The Co-op Buildings were the world's first Cooperative Society was established in the 18th century and was founded by 28 men who were The Rochdale Pioneers. 

St Leonard's is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building. Much of the present building was erected in 1412. He re-used the Norman doorway from an earlier structure to create the tower arch. Also distinctive in this part of the world is the wooden belfry tower. The church of St Leonard was completed in 1524.

Many standard construction semi-detached and terrace homes were built in the early 20th century. With the rise of Help to Buy many new build properties have been developed in recent years in areas such as Littleborough and Burnage.

Properties in Rochdale built very close to Rochdale canal such as Figrove and Castleton Moor, and rivers such as the River Roch, 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).
Rochdale’s Heritage is built up from the industrial revolution and as such properties in the area were built up en masse in the late 18th/early 19th century so we would always recommend a level 3 Building Survey.

Residential houses over 100 years are worth the extra detail and attention of a full structural survey to inspect every inch of the period properties available.
The Coal search is very predominant in Rochdale, so when undertaking a Home Buyers Survey in Rochdale it is important for your RICS Chartered surveyor to check for subsidence as coal mining shafts were evident in these areas.

 The tell tale signs of subsidence are cracks, warping of walls, doors and wallpaper bubbling. It is something that a structural engineer will have to inspect to confirm there is an issue.
