Tiling on suspended timber floors rarely works and this is the result if it’s laid badly. The owner of this property was a builder so he should have known better. Ceramic tiles are brittle and as the timber floor below flexes under load, they are bound to crack.
If you have your heart set on a tiled floor, please lay it on 18mm marine plywood that is securely fixed to the floor joists below.
