Do you qualify for a Cavity Wall Claim ?

There are a few pre-qualification questions that you need to answer, in order to find out if you qualify for a Cavity Wall Claim.

Are you the homeowner?

You need to be the homeowner to make a Cavity Wall Claim – this is not available to social tenants, so if you are a council or housing association tenant, then unfortunately we cannot help. However, if you are a private tenant, then your landlord can apply for compensation, and if you do have damp or condensation this could be a win/win situation – by you having your damp or condensation situation resolved at no cost to the landlord.

 

Are you under the age of 79?

Unfortunately, because this is a NO WIN NO FEE Cavity Wall Claim arrangement we cannot help if you are 79 or older, unless someone younger has a Power of Attorney to legally act on your behalf.

 

Were the walls insulated no more than 8 years ago?

Don’t worry if you cannot answer this question because you cannot find the guarantee – we will help you get a copy.

The guarantee issued by the Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency (known as CIGA) was for 25 years – but the Law only allows you 8 years to make a Cavity Wall claim. The claims take between 6 and 12 months to complete. Therefore, we can only start cases within  8 years of the insulation being installed.

 

Is this the first time that you have made a Cavity Wall Claim for Compensation?

If you have previously made a claim for Cavity Wall Compensation which had a Court decision made, you will not be able to apply again.

 

Is the insulation still in the cavity?

Unfortunately, if the cavity wall insulation has been removed we cannot process a cavity wall claim.
