1850s Manchester flat receives Surveyor's approval

A Victorian flat beside the Mersey has received an excellent report from a HomeBuyers Report in Manchester.  

Our client was considering purchasing the one-bedroom flat in the Manchester suburb of Didsbury. Although it appeared to be in excellent condition, they contacted Fridaysmove to organise a Property Survey in Manchester to assess the property’s structural integrity.

“Generally well maintained, with no major issues”, affirms Property Survey in Manchester

The Property Survey returned a positive appraisal of the property. The only pressing issue that the Chartered Surveyor noted was the safety of the windows.

He found that the majority of the sills were below 700mm in height. This increased the chance of a child (or adult) falling against them. As such they should have been fitted with toughened glass. This safety feature was lacking.

Truly stepping into minutiae, the only other item of maintenance this HomeBuyer Report in Manchester noted was that the shower fitting had detached slightly from the bathroom wall. When your Chartered Surveyor notes a loose fitting as one of his foremost concerns, you know the property is in good condition.

HomeBuyer Report finds a nice flat in even nicer Manchester location

Didsbury is a leafy neighbourhood in southern Manchester that boasts an independent and creative feel. The local pubs regularly host comedy clubs and jazz nights.  

The flat investigated in this HomeBuyer Report in Manchester was located close by:

  • Shops
  • Schools
  • Art Galleries
  • Doctor’s surgeries
  • Restaurants and pubs

The Manchester area nestles into a comfortable armpit of the Mersey River, flanked by golf courses and parklands.  

HomeBuyer Report finds the memory of a pastoral time living on in Greater Manchester

Didsbury was only incorporated into Manchester city in 1904. Previously, it was a rural village. The subject of this HomeBuyer Report in Manchester occupied one floor of a Victorian country villa. The industrial revolution led to an explosion in Manchester’s population and wealth. The burgeoning suburbs eventually consumed Didsbury – and the villa in question.

This Victorian home had adapted, survived and, according to this HomeBuyer Report in Manchester, thrived.
