Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Bredbury, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the lounge - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Scare stories about property pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cluster flies as minor annoyances. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include professional cleaning and removal or excision of affected timber.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we look into rainwater goods? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Regular rainfall is common in Bredbury and across the country, but the effect which damp weather has on your home is usually overlooked. If you have only visited the house you are buying in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that downspouts are under performing include water pooling below gutters. Blocked rainwater goods can result in collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

Fortunately, problems with drains are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
