Subsidence

We regularly carry out Engineers Reports for client’s that have had a report for mortgage purposes and a further inspection is required to approve lending. Whilst carrying out a Structural Appraisal on a property in Kenley we noticed signs of subsidence to the property’s extension. The property was built circa 1930’s with the extension built in the 1980’s. There was a tapered crack clearly visible both internally and externally. The subsoil in the area is chalk and further investigations will need to be carried out. In these circumstances it is highly likely that stabilisation and underpinning will need to be carried out.
