Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations create problems for Enderby house? Will the Property Survey consider this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a house. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. For example, cracks along the kitchen ceiling may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Enderby, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Gas flame

Does the Enderby surveyor look at the safety of the gas heaters?

The local surveyor will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system.

Most people are aware that gas can be fatal and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Enderby. What advice would you give? Does brick decay faster in Enderby weather?

Brick-constructed converted property in Enderby demonstrate several benefits compared to other building materials, but they can also show signs of a number of issues. These can include crypto-florescence or horizontal cracking. The Enderby surveyor would usually include these along with recommendations. An issue of particular concern is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Contact Pedge Steve for a repairs estimate at 01206 273770 or 5a Brick Kiln La, Great Horkesley, Colchester, CO6 4EU.

For example, basket weave bonds or English bond may be used in the construction of converted property in Enderby. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
