Mr Wright bought a house 3 years ago. It is an old house, and he obtained a full structural survey. The survey said that other than some minor work that needed to be carried out on the roof, the house was in a good state.
Mr Wright has recently noticed large cracks around the fireplace, and has asked another surveyor to examine the house.
The second surveyor has advised that the house is suffering from subsidence, and has been suffering for many years.
If Mr Wright had known this at the time he would not have bought the property. Mr Wright has a claim against the first surveyor for professional negligence.
