Top tips for a Altrincham Home Buyers Survey

Altrincham has many listed buildings; these give testament to the diversity of construction in the last few hundred years but also the build quality. One such building from the Georgian period is the Dunham Massey Hall (which has a deer park) which is Grade I listed. The Victorian Stamford Park, opened to the public in 1880, is listed as Grade II on the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.

Numerous houses were built by various developers in the earlier part of the 20th century, most of which are relatively standard construction detached, semi-detached and terraced dwellings, such as can be found in Ashley Road, Bowdon and Bollin Drive, Timperley.

Altrincham was bombed heavily by the Luftwaffe during the second world war, however, as with much of the UK, the post-war economic boom ushered large numbers of house construction projects and in the 1960s, the town centre was rebuilt.
There are many modern developments also, such as the detached houses in Hartley Road.

Does a RICS surveyor perform asbestos testing?

The Survey is a visual assessment to help identify any potential issues.

The surveyor will inspect the property and if they have any suspicions of subsidence they will recommend that you get an asbestos specialist into the property.

The asbestos specialist will review of all accessible areas of the property to assess for asbestos and provide details of areas asbestos is potentially affecting along with taking samples and confirming if the material is asbestos.

We have asbestos surveyors covering Altrincham and they are all qualified to British Occupational Hygiene Society P402 and some to S301 Standards.

All samples are analysed in a UKAS accredited laboratory.

At the end of the process you will know what level of asbestos is present and what it will cost for you or the vendor to remove it.
