New Build Homes.
There are currently thousands of new homes being built all over the country, each comes with various guarantees and warranties for quality, structure and energy performance, giving the purchaser a sense of security and confidence that they are buying a high quality, energy efficient home.
The reality, in many cases, is the opposite! There is currently a lot of media interest in this subject and we have been involved with a number of articles recently including; The One Show, BBC Radio 4 You and Yours and The Today Program, BBC 3 Counties Radio, The Guardian, The Sunday Times and documentaries for Channel 5 and BBC Inside out, over the last few years.
Many of the enquiries we receive are from new home owners who have been fighting developers over issues with their new homes and have hit obstacle after obstacle and achieved very little.
For a number of years now, we have been providing conclusive evidence of fundamental departures from Building Regulations giving clients support and documentation to help with getting redress from the builders, we are also working with legal teams to help build cases against the builders.
The reports we produce are often used by chartered surveyors to guide their investigations to help identify issues that would not normally be seen, using the words of one surveyor, "these thermal imaging reports give me x-ray vision!"
Prices for a full survey start from £350 (plus mileage @ 45p/m) for a 1 bedroom flat or house which includes thermal imaging, air tightness testing and a full report.
