    Not necessarily. After building work some cracks can appear and be normal as the new build settles.

    This has issue has been discussed for a few days now with no remedial, preventive or even investigative work apparently carried out. That is the most worrying fact.
    If you look at OP's previous (slightly incomprehensible) thread which I linked to in post #10, you'll see that OP is being moved to temporary accommodation by the housing authority.


      Two threads by the same member have been merged here. Please do not start a new thread if you merely wish to continue a previous discussion or report on subsequent developments. It can cause unnecessary confusion (quite apart from losing the connection with facts previously established or legal points previously explained).

        I asked only because the answer might determine whose responsibility the repairs might be.
        Oh, and the other thread has been merged with this one.
