Damaged Render

What defects will the Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated regency home in Mossley Hill.

Stucco is really a smooth and flat render. Usually stucco render is layered over underlying brick to form an even finish. The finish is highly beautiful and is found on Victorian homes. Stucco is very like plaster. It can contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as plant fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Mossley Hill commonly show potentially expensive to remedy problems such as trapped moisture leading to the surface breaking. Other issues may include when the render is taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course. Re-coating problems can be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor has suggested subsidence is a concern affecting the house. What are the risks, and what subsidence information does the Mossley Hill home survey include?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be fixed. In addition, some homes are built with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates.

Subsidence-related cracks are on average wider at the top than at the bottom. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This need not be expensive.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor check out the serviceability of the gas heaters?

A will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas (and oil heaters) where relevant, as well as gas related fittings like balanced flues. External covers will not be dislodged. The gas system will not be tested in any way. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it can be fatal, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations require landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .
