Top tips for a Runcorn Home Buyers Survey


Up until the late 18th, Runcorn was a small village in Halton, Cheshire. After the industrial revolution it grew and is now considered an industrial town. A major landmark is Halton Castle, that is thought to have been built in the 15th century with only the ruins remaining today. In 1598 Seneschal’s House was built which still stands today.

There is a variety of architecture in Runcorn. Some Victorian houses lie on Norfolk street and some Edwardian houses on Wicksten Drive. There are a range of detached, semi-detached and terrace houses available on these streets. A new development in Runcorn is Hatters Park which has 3 and 4 bedroom modern homes. Most of these are detached houses.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Runcorn.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Runcorn has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Does the surveyor use Drones to assess the property?

The use of more advanced digital technology within assessing properties is on the rise but don’t always exceed the results obtained from more industry standard equipment or save any time.

RICS surveyors have a selection of measuring equipment, recording devices and equipment for assessing remote and concealed areas such as standard lifting equipment for inspection chamber covers, meter cupboard keys, hand mirrors, a ladder that gives safe access to spaces that are three metres above floor level, and binoculars or telescopes for parts of the property at high level which can be utilized to efficiently certify efects.
