Stockport is a town of around 140,000 people in the south east of Greater Manchester and being only 7 miles from Manchester city centre, it is perfect for commuters. Stockport is home to much impressive architecture and Underbank Hall and the similar (if less well known) Three Shires have stood for almost 500 years. The Stockport Viaduct, which carries trains across the river Mersey towards Birmingham and London, stands as a monument to Victorian engineering. Built from over 11 million bricks and standing 34 meters high the Viaduct brought Stockport fame as it featured in the backdrop of many paintings by L. S. Lowry. Stockport clearly has lots to offer making it a desirable place to live. Our users agree and in the last 12 months reallymoving.com – with the help of our RICS regulated Chartered surveyors – have helped over 1300 people move to Stockport.
The River Thame and Goyt merge to form the River Mersey in Stockport. Although these rivers pose a flood risk, surface water flooding – that is flash flooding – is more likely to inflict damage on property and in 2007, 2010 and 2013 intense rain caused significant surface water flooding which affected Stockport and the surrounding area. Flood waters can cause lasting damage to property, which lingers on long after they recede in the form of damp, mould and rot. This is one reason reallymoving.com highly recommends the services of our expert Chartered Surveyors as they will provide you with a home survey so you can be sure you are knowledgeable of all damages – including damp – before you commit to buying a new home.
With reallymoving.com you can compare up to four Chartered Surveyors to ensure you get the best deal on home surveys and other checks necessary for a risk free move to Stockport.
