Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can rainfall have on our new home in North Newbald? And could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that this issue is ignored by buyers. If you have only seen the residence in good weather, issues may have been hidden.

Signs that drainage systems are a cause for concern include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering, and may lead to rising damp. In most cases, these defects are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 18th Century converted barn. What effect will the house's thatched roof have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in North Newbald plan to buy property with real personality. For traditionally-built North Newbald property, age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. North Newbald property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of North Newbald's conservation areas. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. If you are uncertain, speak to the surveyor for more detail.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are North Newbald properties at risk, and does a building survey inquire into indications of flood damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: ITN). Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the Building Survey may offer suggestions for better flood defences.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect North Newbald house enables the chartered surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
