16th June created by Ciara Courtney reporter from LMFM who came onsite to listen to the story …Go to 20 min 30 secs
Riverwalk Court - Two little words we would give our hearts & souls to never have heard. Proud is something we never really felt living there. We tried to put a brave face on but deep down we knew something was not right, though never could we have dreamed it was as dangerous as we have since discovered.
It’s not a life, it’s an existence. We know there are people going through so much worse in their lives but it’s still really unfair that all the residents of Riverwalk Court did was purchase homes in good faith & yet we continue to be the only ones paying for this mess. We pay with our health, constantly stressed & worried, all the while trying to put a brave face on. We pay with our futures as while this drags on we don’t have one, simple as that. We are stuck in limbo where normal life goes on around us
The apartments came with all the requisite sign-offs (engineers, fire safety officers and surveyors) and documents. Fire plans are signed off on at planning/drawing stages so nobody actually inspects the building after it is complete – and as unbelievable as that seems, it is legally fine.
Very sorry for your troubles. I live in Ratoath myself and can only empathise every day I drive by the erected scaffolding.
By the way your facebook link doesn’t appear to be working.
Thanks yes… finding it difficult to share our Facebook page link… but if you could look under Riverwalk Court Residents
That scaffolding onsite you see is the culmination of arduous investigations and negotiations with Premier Insurance ( exp to take 10 months)
a. Water Ingress to building & resulting building/ timber damage
b. Damage to Weather Envelope
c. Balcony defects
However it will not address any of the serious Fire Issues in Riverwalk Court.
A leading Insurance company Zurich has refused Insurance Cover since 15.8.14 due to concerns over “Quality of Construction and Finish”
Thanks for your posts and sympathy for your situation. It’s another example of corrupt/incompetent developers and the lack of oversight by relevant authorities. Have Meath co co washed there hands of this situation??
