Cavity Wall Insulation Claims: New Claims Epidemic to hit the UK

As the PPI claims epidemic slows up before its official end on August 29th 2019, there is a new potential claims epidemic where widespread mis selling and substandard work has been carried out, affecting millions of UK residents, leading to an influx of cavity wall claims.

An estimated 13 million homes have been affected by the issue (where an estimated 70% of which have received substandard workmanship during the course of the installation). Which in many cases has resulted in UK residents having long term damage to their property, either through bad advice or low quality work.

The estimated average value of cavity wall claims is approximately £10,000 to £23,000 per claim, with substantial refunds available for individuals who have been adversely affected by the scandal.

Badly installed cavity wall insulation has led to problems such as fluid seeping through the walls and into the property and the build up of mould in many of the homes affected. This has caused significant internal and structural damage to properties around Britain. The value of any compensation is intended to reflect the cost of repair and personal reparations for the inconvenience.

Current estimated times to completion are around 12-18 months, with the cases requiring substantial levels of work in order to be brought to fruition. With such a demand for reliable claims management services, it is thought that 1000s of jobs will be created to handle what is expected to be a steady increase in the volume of complaints nationwide.

One particular area of concern is the number of people who have stone-built homes. Due to the significantly higher costs associated with fixing damage to stone properties, this is expected to be reflected in the compensation sums as the amount will need to be higher to compensate for the increased financial burden to those affected.

A conditional ‘No win no fee’ arrangement will be the terms of business between claimants and the claims management companies (CMC’s).

Potential victims are advised to act quickly due to the potential long term damage to their home and the current availability of compensation. The sooner the process is underway, the sooner it is possible for claimants to win compensation for their unfortunate situation.

If you are reading this and you suspect you have been miss sold a cavity wall insulation, or if you have suffered as a result of low quality workmanship of this type, you can reach ‘National Property Claims’ by running a search or see the website at NationalPropertyClaims.co.uk.

Bringing clean water – Christopher Kenny’s Preservation Earth Project

Published

on

Science plainly shows that a human can survive three weeks without food, yet most individuals cannot survive three to four days without water! Dehydration sets in, and the person will go into shock and become vegetative even if they continue to breathe. In other words, water is an essential requirement. A living thing cannot thrive without it. Nonetheless, it is a horrifying truth that billions of people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. 

In developed countries, when everything from technology to luxury is available, receiving clean water at home is as ‘natural’ as breathing fresh air. Most individuals in advanced nations may not pay much attention to it, but this is not the case for the rest of the globe. Many countries continue to lack access to clean water sources or water appropriate for human use. Safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene at home should not be limited to the wealthy or those who live in cities. These are some of the most fundamental human health requirements, and all countries must ensure everyone has access to them.

The Preservation Earth Project (PEP) made its way to Tsaile, New Mexico. Over time, uranium mining, fracking, and pesticide abuse damaged the water supply, resulting in a high occurrence of numerous illnesses. Approximately 35% of the Navajo people do not have access to flowing water, and some must go to a remote location to fill barrels with water from a polluted local spring. 

There is no doubt that climate change is boosting storm strength. Recent natural catastrophes have heightened the need for groups to step up and give support, answers, and relief to individuals affected by such natural disasters. The Preservation Earth Project is a non-profit organization that provides support, education, and solutions to help society transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

A look back at Christoper Kenny’s life

Chris Kenny was born in Summit, New Jersey, on May 4, 1961. He was one of twelve children. In 1980, he received a B.A. in economics and finance from Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, North Carolina. He also attended New York University, earning a commercial real estate management degree from the Schack Institute. Since 2018, he has served as the head of Strategy and E-trading at Hartfield, Titus, and Donnelly. Kenny started his career in the U.S. In 1985. He worked as a Treasury Bond Broker. He formerly worked at Bonds.com as the director of fixed income sales and technological development. His academic background is in business and finance. Chris is passionate about developing and promoting renewable energy, mainly when it is used to assist people in need. The potential to aid those in urgent demand as a result of a human-caused environmental or natural disaster is not just a philanthropic act but also a once-in-a-lifetime educational opportunity.

He used solar power on mobile platforms as a backup power source for emergencies, water purification, and water pumping.

He has over 38 years of experience in finance as a salesperson, broker, trader, and investor.

Making clean water available to everyone

In 2012, Kenny founded The Preservation Earth Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It provides assistance, education, and alternative energy solutions to help society shift to renewable energy. It was involved and aided Haiti several times after the 2010 earthquake, providing portable solar electricity for water purification and medical facilities. In 2020, the business devised a solution for the Navajos’ contaminated water source. They collaborated with engineers and local officials to build, produce, and install a solar-powered water filtration system for the Navajo people of Tsaile, New Mexico. Other activities have included providing portable solar power to the “Cajun Navy” for rescue and clean-up in areas devastated by the 2015-2021 hurricane season in Louisiana. 

The project designed, delivered, and installed a solar-powered filtration system that will provide clean drinking water to the local Navajo community 365 days a year for many years to come. Several more initiatives are in the works to provide safe drinking water to Native American communities on the Navajo Reservation.

President’s letters of gratitude

President Jimmy Carter sent Chris two heartfelt letters encouraging him to continue his charitable work. He suggested calling Habitat for Humanity and asking if they were interested in collaborating on a few projects. He and Kenny both helped out at the charity.
