Home Buyers Survey in Hackney Wick

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Hackney Wick is worth checking. What subsidence issues does the RICS Surveyor report on?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement will often occur in newly constructed houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new house after some months in order to repair settlement damage.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler and repainted. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. 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. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
