Agents note The property had a structural survey carried out in December 2020 by an independent firm of structural engineers, which indicated that the property has suffered some subsidence to the North and East wall together with lintel failure to all ground floor windows. There is external cracking to the west wall, all the soldier courses over the ground floor windows have failed or are close to failure, due to the lack of support of the external brickwork skin.

Underpinning is required to the East and North boundary of the property We understand that it is recommend that all ground floor windows are repaired by installation of single skin lintels to support external skin of brickwork, with pad stones at both ends, as specified by the manufacturer.

For further details and information please contact Fenn Wright.
