Testing for Presence of Sinkholes Prior to Purchasing Property

The State of Florida also does not enforce any concrete rules requiring builders to test for sinkhole activity prior to new construction. The best indicators to look for as a purchaser are visible cracks to the home. Take a good look and if none are visible, the concern should be low. You may also want to check the property appraiser’s website to see if any neighboring homes have had confirmed sinkhole claims although this may be a tedious project.
