Top tips for a Carlisle Home Buyers Survey


Carlisle is a city and the largest settlement in Cumbria in the far northwest of England. It was originally a Roman settlement, built to serve the forts on Hadrian's Wall and Carlisle Castle was built in 1092. It became an important mill town during the Industrial Revolution.

Housing greatly developed in the end of the 19th century, particularly to the west of the city walls. In the 1920s and 1930s the first council houses were built in the city, many of them in the Raffles suburb to the west of the city, which has been greatly redeveloped in the early 2000s.

The city proper has period survivals from many architectural eras. In the north of Carlisle are the suburbs of Kingstown, Lowry Hill and Moorville, and to their south are Stanwix, Edentown, Etterby, St Ann's Hill and Belah which were added to Carlisle in 1912.

The eastern side of the city centre developed in the 19th century into a more affluent area along the main A69 road. It links with the former village of Botcherby to which a large council estate was added in the mid-20th century and later still Durranhill Housing Estate.

South of the city centre is the Botchergate/St Nicholas area of late Victorian terraced housing similar to that found in Denton Holme and Caldewgate. The Botchergate East area until recently had older slum dwellings.

New build developments include the semi-detached houses in Latrigg Road, where Help to Buy has been available to use for purchase; the detached houses in Lowry Street, Blackwell and the bungalows and apartments in Crindledyke Lane among others.

Properties in Carlisle which are built in close proximity to the River Eden and the River Caldew, in streets such as Willow Holme Road and Mayor's Drive, are in areas where flood warnings and 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).
Many areas around Carlisle have been extensively mined for coal for centuries therefore there are chances that this previous activity can impact nearby properties in terms of ground stability, contamination and other issues.

The coal authority publishes maps which indicate some of the areas affected, such as Hallbankgate and Castle Carrock – click to view Carlisle's coalfield plans

If there is an issue with past coal mining and you are buying with a mortgage, it is highly likely that the standard searches returned will advise you to book an additional coal mining search which you can do through us – call 0333 344 3234 to find out more.

Noise pollution from railways is at its highest in Carlisle along the line of the main railway, running through the city on a roughly southeast – northwest access and affecting streets nearby such as Regent Street and Manor Place.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Carlisle and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Carlisle's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
