External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Edwardian terrace needs work. What are the possible consequences? What impact do Yateley environmental conditions have?

Brick-constructed apartments feature several advantages. However, they can also indicate numerous defects, including crypto-florescence and cracks. A problem regularly identified is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. A local builder should be able to assist. Call RSK Brickwork, 32 Bronte Cl, Erith, DA8 1YB on 07840 097336 for a quote for repair work.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a Yateley property. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Property purchasers in Yateley should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. This problem should be taken seriously. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for a serious infestation may include chemical treatment or destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor report on the state of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the meter location/position for instance, in addition to gas associated fittings, for instance balanced flues. Your Yateley qualified surveyor will not remove any fittings and he or she won't run any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
