Hi, we've just moved into a new house which has some sort of climbing plant on it. It is showing pink buds, so we don't think it's ivy but would welcome your advice.

Welcome!
If my memory serves of battles fought, my first thought is 'Campsis radicans'.

Those emerging flower buds don't seem to match campsis though and I believe they have foliage on them before blooms emerge.

The little sticky feet make me think of Boston Ivy.

Think we need to wait until the blooms open

I wonder if these could be possibilities?:
Purple Bell Vine (Rhodochiton atrosanguineum)
Five-Leaf Chocolate Vine (Akebia quinata)
Cross Vine (Bignonia capreolata)

The climbing pads on those adhesive roots looks certainly a of parthenocissus especially P. Parthenocissus quinquefolia, or P tricuspidata. when I saw it first, it always reminds me a tree frog's feet.

Wow, I never even thought of Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia) It's a native here, climbing trees, fences, running along the ground in woodlands. We once had it completely covering a chain link fence and had to take it out because it began climbing up the side of the house to the roof and attaching to the shingles; it was difficult to keep control of. It gets really beautiful foliage in autumn. I've never noticed any little pads, I'll have to look closer next time I see those vines climbing a tree.

I don't know what it is but would like to share my personal thought about it.

I think you should eliminate it. From your pictures, combined with my bad eyesight, it looks like it's attached or is attaching itself to the wall. That could spell trouble. Many vines/climbers will get their roots so firmly attached, especially to brick, that they will eventually do some damage and be hard to control.

But on the other hand, you might have a friendly climbing plant.
