澳洲Australia property Cracks in a unit wall | Sydney
在澳大利亚 The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m
A ground floor unit I inspected today has some cracks in the wall of the bedroom close to the ceiling. I would describe them as being "hairline" cracks. The building is about 4 years old and I believe it is of hollow brick construction. The agent mentioned it was due to building settlement as opposed to being a structural defect.
A second unit in the same building I also inspected did not have any cracks as far as I could see.
Are these cracks something to be concerned about and an indication of future problems?
These are settlement cracks.
