Hello! We are tenants in a new build development which ends in January 2016. Whilst living here there has been a residents association meeting with thr builders and letters to us from them, as they have found that thr flat and toe houses do not have correct fire protection to stop fire spreading for 60mins. The compartment action has not been carried out correctly when built and original builder has gone bump, hence another builder has taken over the snagging.
We have had contractors have to access our flat to install wireless backup fire alarm to thr main building wired system. I believe they have been fitted incorrectly as they against the wall/ceiling.
We have now learnt that all owners will be compensated for the building breaching contract. As a tenant can we claim for any of this compensation as we have been living through this for 11months?
Upto now luckily thr fire issue hasn’t been tested as there has been no fire but if the worse happens the timber frame could go up in flames rapidly due to the fire stop not bring installed correctly,
thanks in advance for info
