Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Hetton Le Hole HomeBuyer Report consider this?

Clay soil can create several issues for house owners. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects. , such as small cracks in the bathroom wall. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Hetton Le Hole, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there are asbestos ceiling boards in the maisonette. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example stove insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic tiles for example. Most of it was sourced from South Africa. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a single fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to break the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Removing it asbestos will likely be expensive must always be completed by experts. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Hetton Le Hole building survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos risks and will recommend relevant tests.

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Hetton Le Hole, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the HomeBuyer Report investigate indications of water damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

The lives of many home owners in Hetton Le Hole and across the UK have been affected by flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a residential property through several routes, including seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Hetton Le Hole area likely to affect the residential property also enables the house surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
