Home Buyers Survey in Clapham and Salph End

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1968-built property in Clapham and Salph End and saw evidence of that the cellar floor dipped in one corner. Is this a urgent concern, and what subsidence information does the Clapham and Salph End Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Often, homes in Clapham and Salph End are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Many homes develop superficial cracks in a wall or floor, due to humidity or temperature changes. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also undermine the foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.
