I am in the process of buying a house and had a home buyers survey done on it. One of the areas that was highlighted was the fact that "The wall and patio to the rear are over the level of the damp proof course and should be reduced 150mm below the damp proof course level". There is no sign of damp at the moment. The walls and patio go right up to the house wall and a small conservatory is on the patio.
Is this or will this be a problem in the future?
It seems a very large job to lower walls and patio especially when there is a conservatory on the patio.
Is there some preventative measure i can take without lowering?
Lots of questions i know but i would be most grateful for any advice or help given.
