To ascertain the market value the surveyor will refer to in depth understanding of the Cleobury Mortimer market and other factors about the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will make certain key assumptions such as the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The agent has mentioned subsidence may be worth checking. What are the risks, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water can collect in the ground, which causes the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Subsidence-related cracks are generally thinner towards the bottom of the crack, if it runs up a wall. 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 volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond maintenance tips - can a Cleobury Mortimer property surveyor assist?

Brick-walled Cleobury Mortimer converted property can be affected by numerous defects. The RICS surveyor should report on these and suggest potential remedies. A defect requiring immediate attention is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. A local builder should be able to assist. Call London Elite Brickwork Contractors, 82 Gloucester Rd, Hampton, TW12 2UJ on 07530 225257 for a quote for repair work.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface).

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
