the Supply of Goods to Consumer Regulations, "goods" have to be free of
manufacturing defects for six years.
house is "goods" for the purposes of the Regulations.
burden is on you to prove that the goods are defective and were defective at
the time of manufacturer/build
seems most unlikely this defect was not there at the time of the building
because leaks like this do not simply happen.
suggestion, if the builder is refusing to remedy the problem is to get it fixed
and so the builder in the Small Claims Court if he does not pay up which you
can do quite easily here www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
that answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
