Top tips for a Berwick-upon-Tweed Home Buyers Survey


Historic houses in Berwick-upon-Tweed include Paxton House which is thought to be one of the most respectable 18th century country houses in Britain. Lindisfarne Castle on Lindisfarne Island (or Holy Island) was built in 1550 and its remains are a fantastic nearby landmark.

The current architecture of the town mainly consists of grand Victorian houses, such those on Castle Terrace and Main Street. These properties tend to be large, detached houses. There are Victorian terrace houses available along the seafront and along streets such as High Greens and Northumberland Road. The new development Halidon Hill contains new build properties that are generally detached.

Which walls does the surveyor report on?

RICS surveyors assess the accessible areas of a property of which the roof structure, ceilings, walls and partitions are included. These areas are normally divided up into internal and external sections within the final report.

Often a surveyor will comment on the building materials of the walls or partitions, noting any structural movement or signs of subsidence and on any signs of damp/rising damp.

Also, if requested before the inspection, a surveyor can often provide their professional opinion on works you may have planned for the property.
