Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw cracks across the render on the outside walls, is this subsidence? What subsidence information does the Elephant and Castle Building Survey include?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be put right. Many homes are built with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Inside the house, keep an eye out for rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness. The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. 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. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
