Top tips for a Ashton-under-Lyne Home Buyers Survey


Majority of the town is of a Georgian style as in the 18th century the town population grew as people from the countryside saw the attraction of working in new industries in big cities. St Michael’s church is the only Grade I listed building in the town and was established in the 15th century.

Victorian properties can be found on Richmond Street and Oldham (terrace houses). Georgian properties are located on Claremont Gardens, Carlton Road and Taunton Lawns. Generally there are many terrace houses available in the town and detached properties can be found just outside.

Limehurst Village is a new development in Oldham, a nearby town, consisting of two to four bedroom houses with seven styles available.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 3-5% with some areas having a potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

Can I get my survey money back if the property falls through?

If the property falls through and you have already had a survey done on the property then the surveyor has already completed the work and there will be no refund.

Alternatively, what you can do is speak to the estate agent and offer for these to be purchased by their new buyer.

Some sellers are receptive to this as it’ll speed up the process for future buyers, however not all sellers will agree.

It can be an annoying time when a property purchase falls through, so we will always look to work with you on your next property purchase to try and keep the next survey cost as low as possible.
