External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Armthorpe and are looking for a 40s house built from Fletton brick. What directions can a Armthorpe surveyor offer? Does brick decay faster in Armthorpe weather?

Brick-constructed apartments in Armthorpe demonstrate several benefits over stone-built property, but they can also be subject to numerous defects, from moisture damage to spalling. Any such issues ought to be reported on, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. A serious concern is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Potter Brickwork Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at Nortex Business Centre/105 Chorley Old Rd, Bolton, BL1 3AS or 01204 465530.

A range of techniques of brick building may be found throughout England and Wales. As an example, running, or stretcher, bond.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will your Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency house in Armthorpe that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a specific type of render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like surface. Stucco render is very appealing and is often found on Regency homes. It can contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as animal fibres to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Armthorpe Home Buyers Suveys frequently detail defects which can include trapped moisture resulting in problems with damp

Another example of problems might include sulphate attack from salts absorbed from underlying brickwork. Re-applying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the building I want to purchase I think we saw that there is an unsafe electrical system - does a the surveyor go into detail on the electrics?

When conducting a Armthorpe Home Survey the RICS surveyor should usually report on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a dangerous condition. A Home surveyor is required to things like checking the state of the visible wiring. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted every ten years (5 if letting out). For local Armthorpe advice from a qualified electrician call L A Electrical , 15 The Cr, Edenthorpe, Doncaster, DN3 2HY .
