Job description

We have agreed an offer on a typical Victorian mid-terrace house in Whitley Bay. The survey has shown up a number of issues which need to be addressed (listed below, descriptions from survey report).

Roof coverings - Cracked and slipped slates on main roof and perished pointings on party wall upstand. Worn felt flashing on roof of rear bay.

Chimney stacks - Chimneys tilting slightly, cement flashings cracked, perished pointing and frost damage.

Ceilings - Some ceilings, particularly in the two front bedrooms, are sagging and cracked and need to be repaired/replaced.

Windows - Misting to some double glazed units indicating failure of the edge seals

Ground floor timbers - Sub floor ventilation limited and some air bricks blocked. Evidence of woodworm infestation in some floor timbers.

Dampness - High moisture readings recorded at ground level, particularly in the living room and entrance hall. No visible external evidence of a damp proof course

Electrics - Wirings and fittings are dated and unlikely to meet present standards.

Loft Conversion - Loft conversion does not meet current Building Regulations (particularly fire safety).

Appointments to view the work can be arranged via the estate agent. We would be grateful for quotes relating to any/all of the work
