Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Ambleside and Grasmere RICS Level 2 Survey consider water damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a survey report will inform your decision. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the RICS Level 2 Survey. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Ambleside and Grasmere builder said subsidence could be a problem. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related matters will the Ambleside and Grasmere Surveyor investigate?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new home after time has passed to make good any settlement cracks.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer can sometimes become unstable and start to slip downhill. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
