Bishop Auckland is a historic town and is thought to have existed at its present site as early as the seventh century. It is referenced in 1000AD as land given to the Earl of Northumberland as a result of his defence of the church against the Scots. Development of the town skyrocketed after the building of the Bishop Auckland railway station in 1842 where the first rail link was to Crook a nearby town.

Bishop Auckland has a wide variety of architecture including Large Victorian properties can be found on Etherley Lane and Edwardian properties can be found on Durham Road. There is a new build development containing 2-4 bedroom houses that are ideal for families known as Laburnum Grove.

Its county town is Durham which is a historic city and is host to the beautiful Durham Castle.

The county's major population centres include Darlington, Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees. Surrounding counties are Tyne and Wear and Northumberland to the north, Cumbria to the west and North Yorkshire to the south.

The unitary authority for the majority of County Durham is Durham County Council, however Darlington, Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees have their own unitary authorities.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of buying a property in Bishop Auckland.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Confusion can arise regarding mortgage valuations and HomeBuyers Surveys. The unfortunate result is that property buyers can sometimes find themselves having to spend a great deal of money repairing faults and defects which might well have - and ideally would have - formed part of the bargaining process with the vendor when negotiations were taking place.

Lenders appoint surveyors to carry out valuations to estimate market values of properties but the survey has no concern with investigating structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes and reports on defects and has a full appraisal and valuation of a property, which, most importantly, is completely independent of the mortgage lender. You can use this information to get quotes for how much it would cost to fix any defects detected in your property in Bishop Auckland. More importantly, the survey can provide evidence which you can use to bargain with the seller about sharing repair costs. Book your HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Bishop Auckland by calling 0333 344 3234 and get yourself some well-earned peace of mind.
