External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Sonning Common and are looking for a 30s property built from brick. What input does a property surveyor in Sonning Common give? Does brick decay faster in Sonning Common weather?

Brick-built Sonning Common structures demonstrate several benefits over buildings using regular cut stone. Unfortunately, they also be subject to both minor and serious issues, such as crypto-florescence. A problem regularly identified is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Sibley R J may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 6 Granville Rd, Cowes, PO31 7JD or 01983 292338.

Buyers in Sonning Common should consider that a number of approaches and materials may be found throughout England and Wales. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. The consequences of amateur

repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Sonning Common home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Sonning Common property will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To work out the correct valuation the surveyor will should use area knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also reflect on materials used and draw upon key assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures, such as stairway access to a maisonette or services, are made in addition to environmental concerns like local Sonning Common industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the building in Sonning Common we plan to buy - Do we need a house surveyor?

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix.

Remedies to pests can include traps. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.
