What is Subsidence Cover?

This is cover against subsidence, heave and landslip.

Subsidence is where the ground beneath a property gradually gives way or ‘subsides’.

Heave is the opposite of this, where the ground rises.

While landslip is where the ground moves, such as down a hill.

All of these events have the potential to damage a property built on them.

Initially, large cracks may begin to appear in the walls, with the worst cases resulting in structural failure.
