It is also advisable to be aware if our property is under Faultline or nearby Faultline. PHILVOCS advises that there should be no property under the Faultline and at least 5 meters away from the Faultline. All houses near Faultline must be well constructed to prevent severe damage as shaking would be stronger in this area.
