Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Bedford Hill home and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Can a Bedford Hill RICS Level 3 Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a house's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. During the RICS Level 2 Survey or RICS Level 3 Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the house I intend to purchase it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, does a surveyor report on electrical system condition?

The RICS surveyor should also focus on possible problems relating to things like whether there are residual circuit breakers. A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the RICS Level 2 Survey in Bedford Hill .

Can Clipsham stone-built houses be hard to upkeep. Which major problems should we consider?
