Foundation Movement – Indicators

Often People ask me what to look for at first glance for underlying issues. Foundation movement is a good example of a regular defect that I see. Many items can give an indication that foundation movement may have occurred, this includes cracks in brickwork or plaster walls, uneven floors, doors not sitting square in door frames or door hardware not operating correctly. If you have any doubt about an item you do observe, the cost involved in engaging an inspector can be such a small investment to ensure that you know what has really happened to a prospective property.
