Our Property Risks & Coverage (PRC) team has experience of both defending claims for damage allegedly caused by subsidence and pursuing subrogated recoveries for subsidence damage against the owners of vegetation.

We assist insurers by advising on the wide range of coverage issues that can arise where damage has allegedly been caused to buildings by subsidence. We also assist in the removal of vegetation to reduce our client’s outlay, if necessary by obtaining a court injunction.

Subsidence recoveries and tree mitigation cases are handled under our RecoveryAssist Scheme. This provides an innovative, staged process for the assessment of whether claims will succeed, maximising the success of recoveries and the removal of vegetation.

Keoghs are members of the Subsidence Forum.
