Customer Question

I am a Freeholder and the tenant is selling the flat.
the prospective buyer's solicitor is asking

"Has the property ever suffered from subsidence? If so, please provide details."

I do not believe the building suffer subsidence at all. However there may be a tiny incling that there might have been some slight one.

If I answer no but then it is evidenced that there might have been a slight one. am I liable?
Can a survey retroback the date of a small subsidence?

Hi

Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is AJ and I will assist you.

You are no obligation to respond to this.

I would right back and say either "Please obtain your own survey" or "Not as far as I am aware, but please obtain your own survey".

You do not need to stick your neck on the line for some one else transaction>

Kind regards

AJ
