Good morning. Welcome to just answer. I am a solicitor and have reviewed your question. With construction claims limitation is not so straight forward to calculate. You can argue that it is a latent defect in which case it would be from date of discovery. If the underfloor heating presented with problems straight from completion then you with out the 6 years from then. If in doubt you want to file anyway before July 2021 to protect your position. Issue fee will be 5% of £20000. Any clarification please do not hesitate to send your follow up question, I am glad to guide you further. All the best
It would be completion of the underfloor heating if it was usable before practical completion.
That would be your counter argument then should they plead Limitation. Your particulars of claim should be clear on when you see the cause of action starting and I would say practical completion when you would have tested it and if it showed fault, alternatively when the advice was given to you following the inspection if the defect is a latent defect that could not have been identified earlier. I believe JA has sent you an offer for a call, it may be more efficient to speak and cover everything on the call as I am not always going to be able to reply instantly when I respond to other customers.
Hi I will call you now, I believe our numbers do not show, or if they do it would be some random number not necessarily mine.
