Top tips for a Stockport Home Buyers Survey


Stockport is a large town in Greater Manchester and was known in the 16th century for its cultivation of hemp and manufacture of rope. It hosts the Stockport Viaduct, built in 1840 and consisting of 27 brick arches.

The town grew when it was connected to the canal network in 1797 and when the railway arrived in 1840 and there are surviving period properties from the Georgian and Victorian periods. Its Victorian covered Market Hall was built in 1861. The Three Shires is a listed 15th century building on Great Underbank, thought to be the town’s second oldest building.

In the 1920s the first council houses were built in Stockport. Many more were built after 1945, in areas such as Edgeley, Adswood, Shaw Heath and Brinnington, where the main styles are semi-detached and terrace houses. Larger detached houses and bungalows can be found in the areas of Woodford, Bramhall and Hazel Grove.

New build developments are available in Hazel Grove (mainly detached) and Heaton Mersey (mainly semi-detached), some available under the Help to Buy Scheme.

Properties in Stockport built very close to the River Mersey, the River Goyt and the River Tame, in streets such as Richard Street, New Bridge Lane and Howard 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 Stockport, including streets such as St Petersgate and Mersey Square, 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).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Overhead lines and phone masts can be contentious and may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

A recent Environmental Search stated that a property in Didsbury Road, Stockport, SK4 2BD, was within 250m of overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

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