There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Abertridwr subsidence may be an issue. What are the risks, and what subsidence-related defects will my Home Buyers Survey inspect?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. Often, homes are erected with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

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 involves holes being dug 1 metre long and around 1.5 metres deep, along all affected sections of wall, and just beneath the present foundations. Reinforcement bars and concrete are then inserted into these pits to support the structure, as the rest of the foundations are dug out and similarly filled in with concrete. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
