It is the buyer’s responsibility to appropriately investigate the condition of the property they are considering purchasing. The vendor has no obligation to remedy any building defects identified by the buyer, however, if the defects are preventing a sale from proceeding (as in this instance) then the vendor might consider undertaking remedial works to fix the problem. I would not recommend proceeding with the purchase without the subsidence issue being remedied by the vendor first.

Friendly and experienced surveyor, the report was completed within 4 working days. Saved us a big headache as we would have ended up buying a structurally defective property
