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.

Properties in some areas of Darlington may be affected by surface water flooding as a result of the River Skerne. Roads affected by this the msot include Valley Street North and Park Place.


Surface water flooding results from rainfall running over ground before entering a watercourse or river. If you are buying a property with a mortgage, when your main property searches are returned, they may advise that you get an additional Flood Risk Report (click to find out more).

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.

I’m buying a new build property, what survey do I need?

If you are purchasing a new build property in Darlington you will need to have a snagging survey carried out by a RICS surveyor. This is an independent inspection looking specifically for faults in new build properties such as sealant in showers, cracked tiles and many other areas.

A snagging survey is designed to find out if there are any immediate problems with your new-build home. The surveyor will provide a report to the buyer with a listing of the areas within the new property whereby sub-standard workmanship exists and good practice has not been used and poor finishing’s are evident.

The snagging report can be provided to the developer and you can negotiate to get the works completed prior or after you complete your purchase - who is going to repair the snags should however be agreed prior to completion.
