According to the Association of British Insurers, tree-related building subsidence costs up to £500 million following a dry summer. Understandably, insurers want to minimise their risk and homeowners want to be assured that their main financial asset is secure.

Clay-shrinkage subsidence caused by trees is a complicated subject and sound advice must therefore be based on a thorough grasp of the issues.

With methods of investigation and monitoring of damaged buildings having progressed over the years - plus dramatic changes to the law - this course brings the subject up-to-date in an accessible and understandable way, with detailed analysis and practical advice.

The live broadcast session is aimed principally at building surveyors, structural engineers and lawyers.

Recording of live sessions: Soon after the Learn Live session has taken place you will be able to go back and access the recording - should you wish to revisit the material discussed.
