Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could high levels of rainfall have on our new house?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on property are not considered by purchasers. If you have only seen the new home in good weather, issues may have been hidden. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix if dealt with quickly.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Chorleywood and are looking for a 70s residence with brick walls. What warnings would a property surveyor in Chorleywood give? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed homes demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also show signs of diverse problems, ranging from sulphate expansion to DPC failure. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey, with repair advice also supplied. An issue of particular concern is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Ridley R J should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at Eddrid House/Springwell Rd, Wrekenton, Gateshead, NE9 7AA or 0191-487 0001.

For example, Monk bond or Scottish bond are both used in Chorleywood homes. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

External walls

For the Chorleywood HomeBuyer Report what does 'E4 - Main walls' refer to?

In Chorleywood, an example may be foundations of non-structural walls which are weak or completely missing. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4.
