Subsidence is caused by the undermining of the foundations of a property. This is usually a result of the escape of water from underground pipes or extended periods of dry weather.
This can cause downward or rotational movement in the external walls, resulting in cracking in the structural walls of a building.
Subsidence claims can be slow and tedious to prove and your Insurer will usually appoint their own engineer to scrutinise and challenge the evidence before they will admit policy liability or enter into any meaningful negotiations to reach an agreed settlement.
Murphy O’Sullivan Claim Specialists Ltd. work closely with experienced professionals in this field so that your claim can be presented in a manner that will expedite the process and reach a successful outcome.
