Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check gutters? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? And could it affect the property value?

Both in Hall Green, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact damp weather can have on property is not given more thought by buyers. Signs that rainwater goods are at risk include corroded downspouts.

In most cases, this is generally easy to resolve. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a apartment in Hall Green and noticed that there is a 6mm gap between the living room wall and the door frame. Is this a severe concern, and what subsidence-related matters will the Chartered Surveyor review?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be put right. Many homes are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. One such issue is that soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting flat. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer may become unstable and slip down the incline. In severe weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.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. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Speak to D W Rose Building & Roofing (17 Doveridge Road, Birmingham, B28 0LS) or Westridge Construction (177 Scribers Lane Hall Green, Birmingham, B28 0PN - Tel: 0121-733 8827) for repairs advice.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. How do we investigate further?

Any questions about pests affecting a Hall Green building may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer. Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for a serious infestation may include use of poison and removal of infected furniture. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
