Settlement and liability
Mr J. A. Tanner wrote to us in July regarding liability when an engineer is consulted about remedial measures for settlement within a row of terrace houses, which may be owned individually or by one owner. His questions have brought letters from several readers. Mr E. J. Skilton of Enfield, Middlesex, writes: I believe there is no ‘correct’ solution but engineers in such situations should act with a combination of sound judgment and technical skill guided by both social and moral awareness.
