Defects devaluing house.
« on: December 12, 2019, 04:26:38 pm »
When the time comes to sell my home I believe it will be devalued due to the structural faults that have occurred.
The whole roof replaced twice, render cracked everywhere that now can't be repaired until April 2020 due to the weather. This will be 2 years past the deadline date set by LABC.
Who will want to buy my house when they learn of these faults?

My house is half painted the wrong colour, very bad render crack repairs that stand right out. I can't remortgage adding my partner because Bloor's solicitor wants a fee of £240 to issue a standard certificate to say I can add my partner to the deeds.

Bloor won't wave this restriction, even though they have done so on another development.
My remortgage offer has expired. If I try to apply on my own any valuer coming out will look at my house and think wtf is going on here.
After nearly 3 years of inconvenience and loss of quality of life living in this house, they won't even wave this restriction as a gesture of goodwill.

They should be paying me compensation for ruining the quality of our life.

Indeed they should buy they won't.

Please write to your MP now the election and Brexit is out of the way and insist the statutory New Homes Ombudsman I have campaigned for over the last 5 years is created as a government priority, to help new homebuyers like you.

We have a new MP, the last one I complained too has retired, very convenient. I will complain and demand a new home ombudsman.
