During a subsidence survey, an expert will visit your property to inspect for signs of subsidence. The
surveyor will look for obvious evidence of subsidence and then determine if the scale of the issue. In some
cases it might be the case that subsidence has occurred due to natural movement. In other cases it may be
the case that a more serious problem has occurred.
When surveying for subsidence, it is recommended that it is carried out by a chartered surveyor who will carry out a full building survey, and thoroughly check for all structural issues.
When significant subsidence has occurred, and work needs to be done to resolve this, home insurance usually covers the cost of repairs. This is subject to specific policy so it is worth making sure that any repair work is indeed covered.
