Home Buyers Survey in Neath Abbey

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a flat in Neath Abbey and spotted cracks down the gable wall. What subsidence-related defects will my RICS Level 3 Survey look into?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the home's own weight.

In areas of clay soil, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This will dry, contracting the soil around the property as it does so, pulling on the homes foundations and which can result in movement. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
