The nature of the soil may affect the right of action, but defective construction of buildings apparently does not. Damages may be awarded for injury to buildings erected on undermined ground, even though the buildings have not been constructed of sufficient solidity considering the nature of the ground, if a right of support has been acquired for the land in its altered state1. Defective construction of buildings may nevertheless affect the measure of damages2.
