Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did they actually lie about anything please?
Note, it may be the morning when I can reply if thats ok?
Basically the septic tank has malfunctioned from the day we moved in. They claim they didn't experience the problems we have but neighbours say they did. They said it was all within boundary of property which is not true as tthe soakaways are on public land. They were not and are not able to produce any buildings/environmental documents because we suspect what they have installed would not pass tests. They were not able to produce BR for some other work which they argued was not needed and our solicitor advised indemnity insurance which we took out. Would indemnity insurance be a catch all or item specific. The insurance = purchase price.
So just so I am clear, you are saying that any expenses we have incurred or money we will need to spend in rectifying a system which has malfunctioned from day one and was installed illegally (in that it did not comply with buildings or environmental) regulations at the time can be reclaimed (or an attempt made) in the way you suggest. Would we need to prove that they were "economical" to the extent of misleading on the seller's information pack? Finally, what would hinder our case or claim? Thank you.
