Hi,

I've had an offer accepted on an old (1900) terraced property in probate. Spotted a few large cracks over windows at the rear of the house and similar ones in the bay of the front rooms (first and second floor). There is a tree in the neighbors garden fairly close to the back of the house. Trying to work out if this is subsidence and I should potentially walk away from the purchase or not. Pictures below, any guidance would really be appreciated. Haven't has the mortgage survey yet and wondering whether it is worth having the builders survey. Many thanks!!!

your post should be below in the Building forum.
read up on the search button the masses of threads about cracks and subsidence and trees etc.
post pics of outside of the house and the tree.
have a walk and ask neighbours and look at their houses.

Not subsidence cracking.

A building survey won't normally comment on cracking, other than that there is cracking. You'll need a structural survey.
