There is photographic evidence of what clearly is structural damage to the brickwork of this Jerry built house. Linden Homes just do not want to know. The exterior damage to the property has also manifested itself significantly inside the property. This can be seen by cracks in the plaster work in almost every room throughout the property which first appeared very shortly after purchase. This has gradually got worse and was reported to the Linden Homes Site Foreman. However, it was asserted by him that the house was simply “drying out”. A few months after purchase skirting boards throughout the house moved to such an alarming level that several tubes of caulking were necessary to conceal the unsightly mess. Again, this was reported to the Site Foreman but this was met by a refusal to investigate and rectify matters. A recent inspection has revealed that this issue has started up once again. These matters form part of a catalogue of problems which arose very shortly after purchase. The first issue was discovery by my tradesman that Linden Homes contractors drove a nail through a skirting board and into a gas pipe. But for the fact that I was laying oak flooring down this wholly negligent act would not have been discovered until what would have been inevitably a fatality. There have been numerous other issues from water damage on a number of occasions due to slap happy plumbing workmanship to problems with electrical installation works. Clear evidence has also recently emerged of door frame movement which compounds my belief that this is not simply a snagging problem but amounts to a serious underlying structural problem. Very recently it was necessary to instruct a plumber to rectify a leak from under floor pipe work due to negligent installation works which has caused water damage to a ceiling in the property. Linden Homes really must realise this issue is not going to go away. I just wonder how many homes on this new development have similar issues. Time will tell.
