Abstract: This paper is motivated by the question of whether nonzero $ {L^2}$-harmonic differentials exist on coverings of a Riemann surface of genus $ \geqslant 2$. Our approach will be via an analogue of the de Rham theorem. Some results concerning the invariance of $ {L^2}$-homology and the intersection number of $ {L^2}$-cycles are demonstrated. A growth estimate for triangulations of planar coverings of the two-holed torus is derived. Finally, the equivalence between the existence of $ {L^2}$-harmonic one-cycles and the transience of random walks on a planar surface is shown.
