Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour has said subsidence is a concern impacting the house. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. The builder will likely return to a new building after time has passed so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, undermine foundations to cause subsidence, particularly in clay-rich soil, as water is drawn out of the soil by shrubs and trees. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the water level falls

and the soil dries out, this organic matter will rot. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
