Top tips for a Sunderland Home Buyers Survey


Sunderland is in the Tyne and Wear area of northeast England and is a city in the centre of its own metropolitan borough. It has a long history as a port, for trading coal and salt, and was known for shipbuilding.

Despite bombing raids, particularly in the 2nd world war, many great period survivals remain in the city, such as the Holy Triinity Church, built in 1719 and St Peter's Church, part of which dates back to AD674.

Much housing was built after the 2nd world war in large estates such as at Farringdon, Pennywell and Grindon; these estates are all now run privately.

The decline of shipbuilding and of Sunderland as a port also resulted in much regeneration along the River Tyne, such as the North Haven housing and marina development and the student accommodation in Fish Quay.

New build developments include the detached houses in Belford Road, Ashbrooke and in The Leas, Whitburn; the semi-detached houses around Fordfield Road; the apartments around Nile Street and the flats around John Street, among others.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

Properties in Sunderland built in close proximity to the River Wear and the sea coast, in streets such as Harbour View and Timber Beach Road, are in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, many parts of Sunderland, including streets such as Stockton Road A1231 and Toward Road, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1-3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the area mainly centre around the main road – West Wear Street A1018, and of rail pollution where the railway line crosses Burdon Rd.

Tyne & WearTyne and Wear is a metropolitan county which came into existence in 1974. It is made up from 5 metropolitan boroughs; South Tyneside, North Tyneside, City of Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead and the City of Sunderland. Adjacent counties include Northumberland and County Durham. Prior to 1974, the county's area straddled the River Tyne, with the north side in Northumberland and south side in Durham.

The most populated area in the county is the city of Newcastle upon Tyne, which used to be synonymous with shipbuilding. Among many places of interest in the county are; Antony Gormley's famous 'Angel of the North' statue and the Beamish Museum, both in Gateshead; Hadrian's Wall, Jesmond Dene park, The Biscuit Factory and the Laing Art Gallery, all in Newcastle; Segedunum Roman Fort & Museum, Wallsend and St Mary's Island bird reserve, all in North Tyneside and the Museum and Winter Gardens in Sunderland.

There are 2 motorways in the county, the A1(M) and A194(M) and numerous trunk roads. The main transport hub is Newcastle, which offers fast, direct railway services to London King's Cross (duration around 3 hours) and many other major conurbations.

Coal was discovered in the area in 1234 and Newcastle became the first coal port in the world. The Gateshead Millennium Bridge in Gateshead is the first rotating bridge ever built in the world. Italian Revolutionary Guiseppe Garibaldi lived on Tyneside for a few months on his way to foment the Italian irredentist movement. He lived in Tynemouth and Blaydon, and the garibaldi biscuit was invented by local bakers to commemorate his stay!

When should you order a survey?

The right time to book a survey is specific to each client’s situation. Generally speaking, it is recommended to book your survey for around a week after your mortgage valuation takes place. This way, if your lender is happy to proceed you are then on track and don’t have the stress of searching for a surveyor to attend your property at the last minute. Inversely, if your mortgage lender comes back and declines your application after the valuation, you then have breathing space to cancel the survey without fear of incurring cancellation charges.

If it is the case that you have concerns in regards to the condition of the property (be it subsidence or damp etc.) and feel that it will impact on what you are prepared to offer or whether you are even willing to proceed with the purchase, you may decide to book it in before your mortgage valuation in order to minimise costs in an already expensive process.
