Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Am sorry to hear about your situation.
I will review your question and will return to you today.
Please note this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays
Thanks for your patience.
Your rights are under the consumers rights act 2015 which states services provided must be done with reasonable care and skill. Given the circumstances it appears the works were not performed with reasonable care and skill which is likely the cause of the leak.
The link below is the law I am referring to.
Further if this right is breached it arguably amounts to a breach of contract and you are right that you have 6 years to consider bringing court action to seek redress.
Do you understand what I have stated if yes I will proceed to the next step
Arguably yes if you are certain the source of the leak it was due to faulty workmanship.
I suggest you contact the service provideprand remind them of your rights and inform to come and rectify the issues at no costs to you
If they disagree notify them to provide their final position in writing as you intend to file a complaint with the ombudsman to consider the matter who can resolve the matter and award compensation
I hope I have clarified the position if not please let me know
