What should I do if I think I have subsidence?
If you think you’ve spotted signs of subsidence, either inside or outside your home, don’t panic! Contact your insurance provider at the earliest opportunity. They can arrange for a full survey, if necessary, to confirm whether or not it’s a genuine case of subsidence.
One common solution to repair or improve the foundations of a property is through a process called ‘underpinning’, which can help prevent further damage and combat the subsidence. Unfortunately, if subsidence is confirmed and even if the issue is resolved, you could still face higher insurance premiums in the future.
