As with many other areas of our practice, we can deal with cavity wall claims on a no win, no fee basis. Our experienced litigation lawyers are on hand to provide free initial guidance to worried homeowners along with details of no win, no fee funding
We can assist you with claiming compensation to repair your home and remove any unsuitable insulation. We can also establish whether you will be entitled to protection under a CIGA (Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency) guarantee
Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency: CIGA
The CIGA Guarantee covers defects in materials or workmanship for a maximum of 25 years and remains valid for subsequent owners of a property. That means that even if you bought your home with the insulation already fitted you may still have a claim.
Some people find dealing with CIGA challenging. It can sometimes be difficult to prove that damp is caused by inappropriate cavity wall insulation rather than say, by condensation. We can handle matters for you by appointing a surveyor to check out your problems. A person know as a ‘Consumer Champion’ has recently been appointed by CIGA with the aim of improve the Agencies complaints handling.
We are based in the North West of England with offices in Cheshire and agents in Blackpool and Liverpool. This is an area of the country that is particularly affected by cavity wall insulation problems due to the coastal winds and heavy rainfall in the region. However, we can assist with cavity wall insulation claims anywhere in England and Wales.
In making a legal claim we can establish whether the property was suited for cavity wall insulation to be installed in the first place. We can also look at the standard of work and consider whether this has led to damp and condensation problems arising.
If you are a home owner and suffering from damp walls which you think may be linked to poorly fitted cavity wall insulation, give us a call or request a call back on this web site.
