Damp can be caused by many differing reasons for example faulty tanking installation, damp proof course, plumbing, drainage or even failure of external render. You should carry out consistent checks to ensure that you have no leaking water pipework and that gutters and drains are not blocked or leaking as this can also cause flood damage.
Property Defects' Role
We identify the actual cause of the problem affecting the building and take specialist advice from surveyors, engineers or specialists as to the correct long-term solution for the problem. We negotiate with insurers responsible for the warranty in order to obtain full settlement.
In representing the property owner, we ensure that insurers fulfil their obligations under the terms of the policy/warranty and acquire an equitable solution to return the owner to a pre-loss position.
