Building on top of unstable soils can cause the house to sink which can then lead to the builder and contractors involved getting sued. Even if you have to take a hit sometimes it's worth it to not leave your name on something that can ruin your reputation.

Exactly, especially since you know about the problem prior to building. Kind of like around here where they built a lot of expensive homes on top of old coal mine shafts and now the shafts are sinking in and the homes are experiencing MAJOR troubles.
