Possible subsidence issues on new purchase?Make Text Bigger
A friend is looking to buy a property but discovered that it may have been built on a farm or small landfill site.
The conservatory was replaced and underpinned (insurance claim).
Homebuyers report and brief inspection by a structural engineer show no problems.
How easy would it be to insure? (some brokers have already refused to quote) and how much additional premium would be expected?
What effect is this likely to have when they come to sell?
All advice welcome!
