Hi
I would appreciate some advice.
I bought a new build house a little over 4 years ago. I have recently noticed cracking in the mortar between some of the bricks on one side of the house. The cracking appears to be below the DPC. The cracks run about 5m along the length of the wall, roughly halfway. The attached photos show the cracking. There is also a couple of spots where small chunks, about 1cm in length, have fallen out further up the wall. Should I be worried or is this normal settlement cracking? Should I get this repaired,
Thanks

Hi
Thanks for the replies. Quite relieving that the cracks are normal and nothing to worry about.
Cheers
