Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Stourport On Severn, and does our surveyor mention it? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact heavy rain can have on properties is usually overlooked. If you have only been to the residence in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible. Poor drainage can lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the early 80s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause problems? What should we expect a Stourport On Severn Building Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Stourport On Severn can have unwanted consequences, with subsidence being a common example. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a house. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. 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.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

A surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the survey, as well as gas connected appliances or installations such as fireplaces. If there are any fittings they won't be undone. Gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
