External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Broughton In Furness, what advice would a Broughton In Furness property surveyor give for a home built from handmade bricks?

Brick conversions in Broughton In Furness will be affected by diverse problems. These can include erosion or sulphate expansion. For instance, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. A & M Brickwork at 78 Tame Street East, Walsall, WS1 3LA on 07944 334031.

A range of styles and techniques of brick building have been used across the country for centuries. As an example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Other external areas of the property

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Broughton In Furness property what could a an amber light rating mean for 'E9 - Other' ?

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Cantilevered joist problems is one example. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the property in question will need some work. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the property. If a property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about vermin on the road - Will the Property Survey investigate this?

Property purchasers in Broughton In Furness should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to pests can include removal or excision of affected timber. If you strongly suspect an issue with lice, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor
