Good morning

we move dinto our new build home last July and since August last year we have had constant damp issues in our lounge and now our hallway.

The lounge damp is in the exact same area since the firts time we raised the issue with the builder.

They have sent a roofer out a few times and told us everything is sorted on each occasion BUT still the damp is there and they are very, very slow in getting things sorted.

It has been 12 months and we are currently living in our bedroom due to damp spreading around plau sockets in the lounge and tv sockets.

Can we claim compensation at all, seeing as it is been constantly with us for a year ?!

Thanks

Dear Steve

Very similar issues to yours were covered by watchdog. There are two watchdog videos on the web site.

The Expert Engineer||Help and advice with structural claims

Feel free to check them out.

It is rather easy to do a damp % test.

It is more difficult to diagnose the cause.


Good luck
