Welcome to Independent Forensic Engineers. We are Civil/Structural Engineers specialising in helping those who have been unfortunate enough to encounter problems with the structure of their home due to bad workmanship, design faults or insured perils.
Many problems can arise in new build properties, and with the rate at which these houses are constructed, it’s hardly surprising! Within the first 10 years NHBC (National House-Building Council) are often the first port of call when you suspect a problem, but although you would hope they will help you to resolve the matter, this very often isn’t the case, as our clients would testify.
Post 10 years your claim will be against your own household insurer.
At the end of the day, insurance is a business, and insurance companies don’t want to pay out money, no matter how dangerous your home’s structure, or how miserable your life may have become due to these problems. BBC’s Watchdog devoted dedicated airtime to demonstrating the lack of co-operation by insurance companies.
Whether at the inception of your claim or having been fobbed off, please give me a call on 0161 265 7070 or send me an email for a FREE initial consultation and advice.
