Work started on Monday 3rd September 2012 to carryout PRC House Repairs to a Cornish PRC House in Hereford. The Cornish PRC House in Hereford is described as defective housing or of non standard construction. The renovation of PRC style properties such as the Cornish house in Hereford is a complicated process and should only be undertaken by specialst builders.
The first part of the PRC House Repairs will involve supporting the structure so that the defective concrete can be removed. A timber structure is errected so that the homeowner can continue to live in the house whilst renovation of this PRC style property continues.
The Homeowners of the Cornish PRC property had lived in house for many years before choosing to buy the property under the Right to Buy scheme, but this property was described as defective housing. In order to buy the house under the Right to Buy scheme they had to go through a two stage process. Having agreed to buy the house, funds were released released for that part of the transaction, then a further advance would need to be agreed with the lender to pay for the Swindon based builders to carryout the PRC House Repairs, which would then make their PRC house suitable for mortgage purposes.
The Swindon based builders have appointed Michael Dyson Associates who are the Structural Engineers who's PRC house repairs licence is being used. Once the PRC house repairs have been completed then Michael Dysons will issue a numbered PRC house repairs certificate to the Swindon based builders, the PRC house repairs certificate will in turn be given to the homeowner. The homeowner will pass the PRC house repairs certificate to the mortgage lender who will then release funds to pay the Swindon builders. It should take about 6 weeks to make this once defective house into a brand new home.
