Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1960-built house in New Rossington and spotted that the cellar door frame was skewed. What are the risks, and what subsidence information does the New Rossington Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new house within a few months to make good any settlement cracks.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and slip down the incline. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further

movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos insulating board concealed in the maisonette. Should we be concerned?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. soffit boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in duct connectors.

All forms including white are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful not to break the asbestos and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note suspected asbestos during the survey and will offer advice.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an old converted barn. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Many purchasers have considered buying a house with personality, like a Georgian terrace. For houses in New Rossington built before the 20th Century, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. New Rossington houses featuring traditional methods can be a chore to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed property, Traditional materials may be required. This may make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential. Discuss this with your building surveyor for further advice.
