 Homebuyers Survey of 1970's Detached Bungalow


 Original fuse box. No RCD protection.

 Green and yellow earthing cable omitted, probably due to the sink being replaced

Crude ceiling patch repair. Textured ceilings can contain asbestos but there is a low risk of fibres escaping unless sanded and it can be worked on with a mask.

Chicken tiles! I see these every week but I have yet to see one where the chickens are all the right way up or even all upside down.

Looks allright from here but the adjacent high ground has pushed against the wall distorting it

 Horizontal fracture. The wall below has come in whilst the roof has restrained the wall above. It has fractured along the weak join of the bricks and mortar.

Same problem as the garage but more obvious. Retainign walls invariably fail due to poor drianage of the ground behind them.

 Root infestation

The likely culprits
