Apologies for the X-post but the d.i.y guys always seem to know
going on with regard to 'building' regs but the real domain of the
is my 'garden'. Basically, I've bought a new house up in Scotland and
garden is a bit of a nightmare. The slightest amount of rain results in
pools of standing water and the newly laid turf is apparently about to
rotting. Now a local landscaper has said that the problem can probably
rectified but I don't think it should be up to me to pay for this. The
landscaper also mentioned that standing water should be the developer's
consideration. How do you think I should approach this - should the
developer be sorting out the drainage or am I stuck with footing the
for this myself ?
Thank for any guidance,
Just to let you know that I received a reply from the NHBC stating
if waterlogging was present within a 3 metre boundary from the house then
the builder was obliged to put this right - otherwise tough luck.
Well that would cover the entire garden in most new houses...
