Agents note on subsidence

We have been advised that some minor structural damage occurred to the external wall in 2018 with the cause found to be attributable to the affects of vegetation. Vegetation management was implemented and, following a period of monitoring, it showed the building had stabilised. Remedial works were limited to the installation of stainless steel reinforcing boards in the external brickwork followed by repointing. We have been advised that no underpinning was required.
