Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a property in South West London. What consequences will the home's slate roof have on upkeep?

The age of a structure can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. South West London homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in South West London. What recommendations will a South West London property surveyor make?

South West London brick-walled flats can experience distinct issues. These can include efflorescence or crumbling mortar. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One frequently reported defect is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. S S B Builders at 5 Oaks Track, Carshalton, SM5 4AP should give an estimate for any work.

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the house we plan to buy. Will a property surveyor look into this?

Buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to vermin can include removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your chartered surveyor.
