NHBC are blinkered.
The designer should have overseen his design holistically.

I appreciate and understand your frustration.
Firstly let me address the most significant issue:
Any problems with the roof of the building which you have a flat in, are for your management company to deal with. It is their responsibility to address any upkeep maintenance...
