My friend who is 62, unemployed due to health problems and has worked hard all his life to own his own home, received a visit from a builder offering free cavity wall insulation as part of a government scheme some 8 years ago.  Since then, he has had significant problems with damp. 


A legal firm contacted him (no win no fee) and took up the case saying there was a possibility the cavity wall insulation was not fitted correctly. 


The case collapsed recently and the company who fitted the cavity wall insulation has now gone into liquidation.  To make matters worse the law firm carried out multiple surveys (6) on the property and has also gone into liquidation leaving my friend with the possibility of being liable for a loan of up to £10,000 for the surveys carried out. 


CIGA the organisation responsible for guaranteeing the work has used multiple excuses stating the lack of central heating etc as the cause and not the cavity wall insulation which has never been a problem before,


meanwhile the black mould issue is getting worse and it is becoming more clear that the cavity wall insulation is the problem.  He has had a quote for the work and has been quoted £20,000 to carry out the work to repair the cavity wall insulation.  


In addition following the collapse of the law firm the administrators supplied my friend with a new solicitor who has apparently applied to the court for a discontinuation of proceedings due to the low probability of a good outcome,


what options does he have, his house is now worthless and he has not got £20,000 to repair the house.
