An underpinned property is one that is either suffering from any movement or has done in the past. It is possible to buy and sell an underpinned property. Underpinning often concerns clients but is really not as worrying as you think. In effect underpinning is a practical way of putting the correct foundations under a building where the originals are inadequate. It could be argued, therefore, that the underpinned building is actually better than a neighbouring building that has not been underpinned. The underpinned building now has the correct foundations whereas the other one is waiting to fail.
Underpinning is not always necessary to rectify a subsidence issue, and is increasingly being used only as a last resort. There are a number of other options that might be open to you, depending on the individual circumstances of your subsidence issue. Usually, once you have contacted your underpinned house insurance provider, a period of observation and investigation will commence to diagnose the issue properly.

Underpinning can be a tense operation, not helped by the aggressive business environment of today, with cut-throat tenders by some less reputable contractors. Funding bodies may often only give a grant to the value of the lowest bid for the work. Clients are stuck with the most trying of circumstances to overcome. A difficult technical operation can be made doubly stressful by the extreme considerations of business. Another pressure is the availability of grants for spending them.
