Are you tenant in a Housing Executive property or a homeowner of an ex-council house in Northern Ireland that is exhibiting damp and mould?

RP Crawford & Co Solicitors are the leading cavity walls claims solicitor in Northern Ireland. We are currently processing claims against the Northern Ireland Housing Executive for tenants living in properties that have defective cavity walls. In addition to this, we are also seeking compensation for NIHE tenants with deteriorating health conditions caused by damp living conditions.

Damp Properties Detrimental to Health

Inadequate or defective cavity wall insulation in many Housing Executive properties is resulting in miserable living conditions for many. However, an increasing number of tenants living in damp, cold and hard to heat council houses are also suffering from a decline in health, particularly worsening of respiratory diseases including asthma and deterioration of skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. If your NIHE property is exacerbating a respiratory disease or skin disorder, please contact our team.

Signs of Poor Insulation & Defective Cavity Walls in NIHE Properties

Common signs of a property exhibiting dampness and defective cavity wall issues include:

  • Mould
  • Damp and rising damp
  • Condensation on windows / doors
  • Cold, hard to heat property
  • Home furnishings destroyed with mould
  • Mould along the outer wall of your home


Claims for NIHE Damp Properties & Defective Cavity Walls

We have successfully obtained compensation for many clients who have been living in properties with little or no insulation materials in the cavities, rising damp and mould around windows and skirting. We have also secured compensation for tenants who have had significant damage to fixtures and furnishings caused by mould and dampness.
