RICS DERBY SURVEYORS HOMEBUYERS SURVEY REPORT ON A 1932 TERRACE HOUSE
Our Surveyors found leaking rainwater goods, damp walls, solid walls and a bowed roof during the Homebuyers Survey of this 1930's terrace.
Front view. Cavity brick front and rear walls with concrete tile roof. PVcu windows with concreTe lintels. Engineering brick damp proof course.
The small brick ends indicate that this side wall is of solid construction and likely to be relatively cold compared to the front and rear.
Asbestos Ceiling Panels above an entry tunnel. The abstos is well encapsulated. Simple precautions such as wearing a mask will suffice if disturbing it.
A fracture of this lintel shoud be repaired to stop corrosion of the reinforcing steel which is very destrucitve.
Poor gutter arrangements may allow spillage.
Damp stain corresponding to the donwpipe in the photograph above suggesting that water is spilling from the gutter or downpipe.
Dishing of the roof due to undersized structure.
Rodent damage to timbers in the roof void. Lack of droppings suggests that it is historic.
Chicken tiles. Unusally the Chickensare all the right way up. Indicator of 1970/80 tiling.
Damp damage in the understairs cupboard. Poor ventilation combined with the cold solid wall suggests condenation is the cause.
