Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a house built in the late 70s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Can your Salford House Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Drought, for instance, can have a significant shrinking effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. For example, small cracks in the bedroom ceiling may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like checking that the downpipe drains correctly. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
