Buying A Modern Property Can End Up With Damp Issues. Here Is An Example In Colchester
The owners of a modern house discovered water in their loft a couple of years after moving in. Mark from MS Surveys went along to investigate and found significant condensation during a cold day in December. The membrane underlining beneath the roof tiles was not effective during freezing weather, resulting in excessive levels of moisture/condensation. This had caused damage to many items stored in the loft. Extra ventilation was recommended to the client. A common problem with modern properties!
An RICS Homebuyer survey or Condition report, can help identify problems like this. So even if you're buying a modern home, get a property survey from MS Surveys. We are surveyors working across Essex and Suffolk.
