Welcome to Subsidence Watch 2020. This year we are aiming to issue a monthly edition, to keep our clients fully briefed on developments as they evolve throughout the season.
As we have seen over the past year, meteorological conditions are difficult to predict and only a few months ago as an industry we were dealing with localised flooding in many parts of the country. As the dry weather appears to continue for now, our focus has shifted to predicting the volume of potential subsidence claims that may occur. Any surge or upturn in volumes this year will depend on a period of dry and warm weather through the months of June to September. We appear to be set for a very dry and warm June and we will continue to monitor how the position unfolds, as well as compare with the data of previous surge events such as 2003, 2006 and more recently 2018.
We look forward to sharing with you our industry insight and
analysis to help your business be prepared.
