Traditionally built property

What should we think about when purchasing a house built in around 1730 in Hall Green? What impact will the residence's box frame structure have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers hope to own a house with personality, like a Medieval cottage. Vernacular architecture, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Structures featuring traditional methods can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could make the final cost hard to predict.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the building I expect to lease, it looked like there was no RCD on the fuseboard, will a Homebuyer Report in Hall Green go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Hall Green Home Survey your RICS surveyor will usually remark on the electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in an unsafe condition. He or she should also provide detail on issues like checking the state of repair of fixed applicances, e.g. heaters. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Hall Green. Looking at any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Hall Green .

The IEE advocate that a Periodic Inspection is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can be an issue for houses in Hall Green. Will your Hall Green Home Survey look into this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
