Latent Defects

Latent Defects are classed as a fault in a property that could not be detected during a thorough inspection. This essentially means underlying structural issues and other issues that cannot be easily physically looked upon.

There are many types of latent defects, including subsidence, damp, drainage failure and heave. These are a result of incorrect craftsmanship, a failure in the building materials used in construction. Building materials such as weak concrete and shallow construction contribute to these defects.  These defects can be claimed upon as the details were not disclosed when the property was purchased.

Damp and Drainage

Damp is caused by a variety of factors such as underground drainage systems, malfunctioning plumbing and faulty roofing. Property Defects have experts who specialise in the removal of damp anywhere in your property without causing any structural damage. This is a serious latent defect due to its toxic nature and can result in sickness for those who spend a large amount of time near the damp.

Drainage failure can significantly affect the stability and position of your property. Failure occurs when a drain is incorrectly constructed or an event has caused it to become damaged. Drainage failures leads to water escape causing soil to be washed away underneath the property.

Subsidence and HeaveLatent defects caused by subsidence

Subsidence is the shift of a property due to defects in the foundation i.e. shallow foundation or poor construction. Shallow foundations are also a result of older construction dates, foundations used to be constructed to a shorter depth then what is required in modern day construction. Subsidence results in cracks and instability for a property resulting in possible damage to water, electricity and gas mains.

Trees can cause significant subsidence to your property. Tree types such as willows and oak trees have a large root structure meaning they can be more damaging to your property as their roots dig into the foundation of your home.

Heave is the upwards shift of a property due to upward ground momentum. This can occur from wet weather on dirt consisting of a large quantity of clay. This sudden change in foundation location can just like subsidence result in damage to utilities.

Just like with most types of business, not all loss adjusters will have a perfect review score. If they did you may find it a bit manufactured or suspicious. Instead, take the reviews at face value and make your own opinion based on what previous customers have had to say about them.

A good loss adjuster will be one that stands up for their client.

Water damaged items will need to be cleaned and repaired and placed in secure storage.

For impact damage or subsidence your loss adjuster would call on the assistance of a surveyor in order fully evaluate the full extent of the damage. They would be able to submit a detailed assessment to your insurer with the recommended costings to fully repair your property.
