External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will you make for a 90s residence built from brick chimney? What impact do Bourton on the Water environmental conditions have?

Brick Bourton on the Water residential property will be subject to considerable issues, ranging from spalling to moisture damage. For example, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and may require immediate attention. Castelli P A may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01635 866222 or 1 Eliot Close, Thatcham, RG18 3UG.

For instance, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a home in Bourton on the Water. Will a Bourton on the Water Home Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home, with subsidence being a common example. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Bourton on the Water home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil. 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.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should we choose a full structural survey prior to investing in a defective seventies loft apartment in Bourton on the Water?

Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its renaming a while ago by RICS. If you are buying an altered Bourton on the Water house, for example an unloved apartment - Building Survey is the most appropriate survey. It should outline comprehensive and often serious professional advice about the property's standard of construction and repair along with any defects, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) should be inspected.
