Hi, I own a ground floor flat as a leaseholder that is part of a large 2-storey block. Before I bought the property 5 years ago the management company had cavity wall insulation installed (around 10 Years ago) I now have two walls that run with condensation and has black mould growing all winter.
It seems to get worse every year. Speaking to a few people and with what I have read, they seem to think that the damp-proof may have been bridged and now the insulation must be soaking.
I contacted my management company who says it’s nothing to do with them and can’t help me as the company is no longer is trading. Surely they must be liable to have it removed as they had it fitted in the first place. I’m in the process of getting a quote to have it removed, then hope to go back to them once I know the costs involved.
Is there anything I can do to get them to either have it removed or pay for it, if I have it removed. Could I take them to the small claim court for instance?
