Top tips for a Doncaster Home Buyers Survey


Many houses in Doncaster were built in the early 1950's. In the early 1980's defects in design and construction were discovered in a number of non-traditional houses designed and built before 1960.

There are 800 listed buildings in Doncaster. These are all in smaller built-up areas in rural locations such as Bentley, Armthorpe and Sprotbrough. Conisbrough Castle is one of the famous buildings in Doncaster. 

It is a medieval fortification in South Yorkshire and the castle was initially built in the 11th century by William de Warenne, the Earl of Surrey, after the Norman conquest of England in 1066.

Underneath Doncaster lies a huge natural resource by way of deep seam coal. 

Doncaster’s borough expanded dramatically in population with the development of coal mining, however the vast majority of these mines closed in the 1970s, and the early 1980s. 

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is affected by mining, you should consider getting a mining report.
A few properties in Doncaster have been affected by subsidence particularly brought on by previous mining works. 

This occurs when the earth beneath or near a property's foundations has been weakened or hollowed out by the mining works. 

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is affected by subsidence, you should consider getting an environmental search, which can be a very first and useful step in finding out if a property you're interested in buying is afflicted in this way.
There has previous been flooding to homes built near or around the River Don. 

 If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is going to be affected by flooding, you should consider getting a Flood Risk Report.

YorkshireYorkshire is the largest county in the United Kingdom and it is made up of large subdivisions; North Yorshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire; which administer their own parts of it although the whole is still recognised as a cultural region and geographical territory.

It is bordered by the counties of Durham, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Lancashire and Westmorland.

When should you book your survey?

A survey from booking to getting your report should normally take around 2 to 3 weeks depending on the time of year (busy periods are July, August and December).

The best advice is to instruct your surveyor at the same time as you instruct your solicitor.

The reason being is that your solicitor tells you of any legal reason to not buy the property and the surveyor will look to tell you if their is any visual reason to stop buying or to renegotiate the selling price.
