Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Does a Little Ilford HomeBuyer Report discuss soil composition the report?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Little Ilford property will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a house. For example, separation of the skirting board from the floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. There is a real benefit in booking a Little Ilford surveyor to carry out

your Property Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. 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 surveyor check out the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) as part of the Little Ilford survey, as well as gas associated fittings e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. However, the Little Ilford chartered surveyor won't remove any gas fittings and won't do any tests whatsoever on the system. Gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1840s home with stone walls. Which major potential issues should we consider?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.
