Gas flame

Will a surveyor advise on the condition of the gas heaters?

Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the mains is connected for example, in addition to gas connected fittings, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). External fittings or housings however, won't be undone. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer immediately.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Burnage and are looking for houses built with English bond walls. What directions can a property surveyor in Burnage offer?

Brick-built Burnage homes do benefit from many advantages in comparison to other forms of building. Unfortunately, they also suffer from several common problems, such as sulphate expansion. For instance, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and should be taken very seriously. Neale Alex may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0121-501 3594 or 47 Hagley Rd, Hayley Green, Halesowen, B63 1DR.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks, to the rare, such herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern.
