Top tips for a Darlington Home Buyers Survey


Due to the main developments of the town being in the Victorian and Edwardian era, there are many beautiful properties in Darlington built in this period. Some Victorian properties lie on streets such as Coniscliffe Road and Southend Avenue of detached, semi-detached and terrace styles. There are semi-detached Edwardian properies on Milbank Road and Stanhope Road North.
Despite most houses being from this era there are also some older Georgian properities such as terrace houses on Front Street.

Millfields at Lingfield Point is a new development 2 miles east of Darlington containing many new 3/4 bedroom properties with easy access into the town.

DurhamCounty Durham is a county located in the north of England and its coastline is on the North Sea. Its county town is Durham which is a historic city and is host to the beautiful Durham Castle. The county is perhaps most famously known for Durham Cathedral, otherwise known as The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St Cuthbert of Durham, first opened in 1018, as well as the collegiate Durham University that was first established in 1832.

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.

County Durham contains many national parks like the North Pennines, Hamsterley Forest and the High Force Waterfall. North Pennines is a section of the Pennines famous for mining and birdwatching.

The only motorway in the county is the A1(M) but there are many dual carriageways with the main ones being the A68 and the A688.

What is included in a Building Survey?

The Royal institute of Chartered Surveyors provides guidance on what you can expect to have included in your survey report.

The main areas included in the inspection are assessments for signs of subsidence, testing for damp, a review of drains and a loft and roof space inspection.

Checks are also made to identify any signs of asbestos or infestation which may require further specialist checks.

Utilities are assessed and any recommendations made if any concerns about age and condition are identified.

Testing of equipment cannot be carried out as tests can only be carried out by qualified specialists such as plumbers or electricians based locally in Darlington.

The surveyor provides recommendations in the legal section of the report which should be passed to the legal adviser carrying out the conveyancing to ensure any necessary enquiries are raised with the vendor’s solicitor.
