Top tips for a Durham Home Buyers Survey


Durham is a city with an extensive history and has buildings constructed in any number of architectural periods, such as St Cuthbert's cathedral, which dates back to Norman times. You can find Georgian buildings on the Bailey and Old Levet, many making up Durham University's colleges. There are numerous examples of terrace properties built in the Victorian period, such as the many in in St Bedes and in Victoria Terrace, Lanchester, for example.

There are many housing estates which were built in the 20th century, particularly from the 1930s onwards such as the Sherburn Road Estate, which has many semi-detached houses as well as terraced housing and detached dwellings.

There are numerous new build developments in Durham such as the Help to Buy detached properties in Eden Field, Newton Aycliffe, the large detached properties in Ramside Park, Carrville, bungalows in Hill Top View, Bowburn and the flats in Kepier Crescent.

Local Tip 1
Local Tip 2
Local Tip 3
Properties in Durham which are built in close proximity to the River Wear are sometimes subject to flood warnings and alerts, including those in streets such as Frankland Lane and Providence Row.

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).
Durham has an extensive coalfield which has been exhaustively mined over many years and old coal mining tunnels can sometimes cause ground stability and contamination issues. If you are in any way concerned about these in relation to a property you're buying in the area, you should consider getting a specialist coal mining search along with the four other main property searches.
Noise pollution from roads in the Durham built-up area mainly centre around the path of the A690 and the Framwelgate Peth, affecting nearby streets such as Walkergate and Highgate.

Noise pollution from railways in the Durham area are most raised around the path of the mainline railway which passes through Durham Station. The noise affects streets adjoining or very nearby to the railway including, for example, Redhills Lane and Bridge Street.

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