We would like to make interested parties aware that circa 1978 the property experienced subsidence. This was investigated and identified as being caused by uneven shrinkage of the clay subsoil. Remedial works which included underpinning and piling to external walls were completed along with other remedial works. Documentation is available upon request.

In 2022 the property experienced differential movement and damage to an internal wall which had not been underpinned originally. This issue was investigated and the cause was identified as being a large weeping willow tree and silver birch located in the garden to the left of the property. As recommended both trees were felled and a certificate of structural adequacy issued and documentation is available for inspection.
