What Houzz contributors are saying:
Plan for underpinning Any drain leakage over time might deteriorate the foundations of an older property. If this is the case, it’s important to structurally improve the house with underpinning. Before you buy, check to see if the house has already been underpinned. The vendor should be able to produce engineering documentation to show you whether this has been carried out. If the property hasn’t been underpinned, ask a structural engineer whether it’s necessary. Check for cracks, especially at the windows and door heads, as these are a key sign that the property may need underpinning.
