Subsidence occurs when the ground underneath a building sinks, causing its foundations to start to sink. This causes buildings to become misaligned, leading to considerable structural damage in the process. Subsidence is a problem dreaded by property owners; not only being able to damage the structural integrity of a property, but also its value. Also, building subsidence makes a property a lot less appealing to prospective buyers and even mortgage lenders.
