I've purchased a property that suffers from damp! on pulling away the damaged plaster etc its become apparent the cause of the damp is a virgin media installation team outside the property, they have tarmacced around my gutter downpipe creating a hole around it with nowhere for water to drain away....... whats worse is I cant get virgin media at the property even though there's a virgin media cable directly outside my house!
Hi as jpeg1 has said, it is also a public forum so legal issues have to go direct to virgin, but I personally would be very wary of incurring large legal costs, unless you have a cast iron case.Regards Micky
who caused it is irrelevant imo - if it was like that when you purchased it then you need to talk to a solicitor to sue the surveyor if you had a survey done - if you just had the basic survey even that should have picked up damp and it should have been reported for you to negotiate a reduction in the asking price or push the owner to resolve it before you bought the property
Yes sorry I should have been more clear I was aware of the damp when I bought the property, I’m not posting In order to make a claim my issue is who I need to speak to in order to resolve the situation I can’t go around just digging up tarmac etc around there installation on the pavement which isn’t on my property but the situation needs resolving or I’m not gunna get rid of the damp it’s causing
