In October i moved into a new build which i'm renting from a housing association.
However, when it rains i get a puddle outside my front door because the drive slopes in (not a lot but enough for the water to run towards my front door) and they didnt put a grid there. I've noticed my 2 next door neightbours dont have grids, but their drives appear flatter than mine. But the 3 houses on the next block along, all have grids in and their drives slope only slightly more than mine.
Been phoning housing association for weeks and theyve come back today saying the builders (Seddons) have visited the property when it was raining and said that under building regulations, if standing water drains within 30mins then its OK and from what they seen it does so they're happy with it.
Does anyone know if this is true??
