We carry out residential structural surveys and commercial surveys in Sedgefield. Sedgefield is a town which is situated in Durham.
Sedgefield is a small town and civil parish located on the A689 about fifteen miles from Durham and twelve miles from Middlesbrough. The town was originally a small settlement on a Roman Road but records show in Norman times it was a village. Nowadays it has become a small Market town but has managed to keep its village charm and appeal. It is a delightful town to wander around after conducting surveys in the area. Many properties and buildings in the town dating back to the 17th century have been carefully restored and the centre of Sedgefield has now become a conservation area. Sedgefield is also the only town in County Durham to have its own racecourse.
St Edmunds church in Sedgefield dates back to the 13th century and overlooks the town. The Rectory attached to the church was added in the 18 th century and after being converted into a community centre is now called Ceddesfield Hall and is reputed to have its own ghost, the Pickled Parson.
Another building of interest in the town is Hardwick Hall built in 1748 by John Burden as his personal home complete with extensive grounds. The Hall has been used as many things over the years including a maternity home before falling into a state of disrepair. It has now been restored and converted into a 4 star hotel. The grounds of the house are now called Hardwick Park and have been restored by the council to their former glory and have been opened as a public park.
Tony Blair was MP for the Constituency of Sedgefield and the town attracted the attention of the British public and media when he was elected as the Prime Minister.
If you are planning to book a building survey on a property you are purchasing in Sedgefield or the surrounding area then we would like to assure you that we always send a suitably qualified and experienced surveyor to carry out the job. This ensures that you get expert advice on any issues that we may find with the property we are surveying. All our surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - RICS - and are Independent Building Surveyors. Being 'independent' means that they are working for you and you alone; they do not work for a mortgage company or an estate agents, so they have your best interests at heart.
All our survey contain lots of images, clearly showing any problems that we have identified at the property such as woodworm, rising damp or cracking to the walls. We also use sketches in our survey which are aimed at helping you to understand how certain areas are constructed or to help show more clearly a problem that we have identified. You will also find lots of definitions of any building terminology that we may use in our survey, as we firmly believe in 'Plain English' and really want you to fully understand what we are saying in the survey report.
