Top tips for a Wigan Home Buyers Survey


Wigan’s property boom accompanied the Industrial Revolution, with much of the housing in the form of Victorian terraced, semi-detached houses and Cottages. 18th, 19th and early 20th century buildings still remain.

There are some older buildings such as the St Wilfred’s Church, which is the only Grade I listed building in Wigan and built more than 400 years ago. Its unusual gatehouse was added much later in the 1920s.

Many standard construction semi-detached and terraced homes were built mid-20th century and newer properties are being built now, with Help to Buy and Shared Ownership schemes paving the way for first time buyers.

With developments such as Rothwell Farms in South Wigan, newly built houses are on the rise. With a new build property, we wouldn’t advise a defect report as in depth as a HomeBuyers Report but it would be much more suited to have a Snagging Report carried out. This style of report will grade the build quality (bad/good/excellent) and will allow you to submit this to the developer for review.
As Wigan was an industrial town, the Liverpool & Leeds Canal connect the surrounding Towns and Cities. As a result, many residential areas in close proximity are at risk of flooding, if you are looking to buy a property in the surrounding areas it is always worth obtaining a flood report. A RICS surveyor would also be able to advise if there is a case of rising damp on the building as an after effect of a previous flood.
With many standard construction properties having been built in and around Wigan in the last 50 years we always advise you to get a HomeBuyers Report carried out by a RICS Surveyor. A Level 3 Building Survey is more suited for older properties as opposed to those built post-1960.

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