Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Liskeard. Is there a flood risk, and will the building survey investigate signs of flooding, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty. Both home purchasers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a home through several routes, including seepage through external walls. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the home we plan to buy - Will a surveyor look into this?

Liskeard purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Liskeard subsidence may be an issue. What subsidence information does the Liskeard property survey include?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience some minor cracking. A builder should return to a new home after some months in order to repair settlement damage.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This may be referred to as groundwater subsidence. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
