This means house prices registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £166, 328, which is £28, 900 less than the asking price. 86, Ruskin Avenue, Rogerstone, Newport, Newport, Newport, NP10 0BD a detached property sold for £237, 500 .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found that windows in the dining room did not line up, is this subsidence? What are the risks, and what subsidence issues will the Home Buyers Survey investigate?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water can collect in the ground, which causes the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the brickwork or walls on the outside, or noticeable widening cracks which have remained stable for some time, may indicate subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise the structure. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the thirties house we want to acquire we think we noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will a Homebuyer Report in Rogerstone advise on any faults with the electrics?

When preparing a Home Survey in Rogerstone the home surveyor should usually mention the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a visual inspection of any revealed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of areas e.g. verifying the category of any electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the survey.
