Cavity wall insulation is one of the most mis-sold products Britain has ever seen with millions of cases potentially miss-sold and also with the levels of faulty work done by the many building firms who have carried out cavity wall projects.
Cavity Wall Claims – The Wider Issue:
In the past 20 years, cavity wall insulation has been mis-sold on an industrial scale with millions of UK residents being eligible for compensation for either mis-sold cavity wall insulation or low-quality insulation installation.
These are contributing factors as to whether or not the victim is due compensation and how much because the amount of compensation is a factor in how much is paid out to the claimant if successful in their cavity wall claim.
When it comes to cavity wall insulation and the mass scale installation of it as a building service, it is estimated that 7 out of 10 cases are mis-sold or contain faulty building work.
Cavity wall insulation when improperly installed causes issues with moisture, issues with structural damage to the property, and other damages that cost significant amounts of money to fix, placing victims of mis-sold cavity insulation in a situation where they have to find thousands of pounds to fix. (many of these cavity wall errors take over £5,000 to fix).
With mis-sold installation, the point of contention is the fact that the product has been mis-sold, and the commission has been taken by the company marketing the product, which is unethical because the C.W.I sale would have been carried out in an environment where it was an unnecessary measure for a property.
With poorly installed C.W.I. it is more of a case of the issue not following building regulations and the fact it is going to cost money to fix the issue that needs to be factored into the compensation claim.
How much compensation can I win?
The amount of compensation that can be won from successful cavity wall claim is usually anywhere between £10,000-£23,000, this means that you could be awarded on average anywhere between those two amounts.
How Do I Know If I Qualify For A Clam?
If you’re a homeowner and have had a cavity wall insulation installation put in you may wish to check if it was or wasn’t mis-sold.
This is probably the most sensible way to determine if you do or don’t have a claim expert solicitors can tell you whether or not you have a valid claim that is likely to pass out if you pursue it.
It’s possible you could be due compensation and not know it so it is worth putting your claim in the application into NationPropertyclaims.co.uk for a free, no-obligation check and survey.
Usually, cavity wall claims are done on a no win no fee basis taking away any of the financial risks for a claimant from the outset.
