Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1961-built flat in Frinton On Sea and saw evidence of cracks across the render on the outside walls. Is this a major risk, and what subsidence information does the Frinton On Sea HomeBuyer Report include?

Movement of a building on a structural level is called subsidence. The builder will likely return to a new building within a few months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. For example, water leaking from a broken drainage will wash away the earth protecting the building's foundations. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Frinton On Sea? What should we expect a Frinton On Sea Home Buyers Survey to include?

Clay soil can create a number of issues for home owners. Specific issues include soil swelling. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar, such as sticking window frames.

Taking precautions, such as swift repair of any collapsed drains, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
