The storey so far,
My brother had his house built 3 years ago. A yrear and a half ago he started having damp problems and water leaking through the concrete barge. Damp marks leading to fungus growth started on walls in the middle of the walls on ground floor, and in window reveals, in the middle of first floor walls (approx where lead flasing is at abutment with wall), and in the attic water is visibly dripping in, saturating structural timbers. see pics.
The engineer had alredy sent a letter out prior to any problems, saying he was finished with the house, as did the builder, as for his contract. Basically builders contract said that 6 months after handover, he's not responsible for any problems. Surely he cannot escape that easy when there is this much trouble with a relatively new house..
help greately appreciated.
Builder had alredy come out when problem first started, and applied silicone to barge to solve the proble.. how ridiculous is that.
