Geoff has unfortunately been left to live in unsafe and unhealthy conditions due to rogue traders. Originally he hired builders with the intention of having insulation fitted into his roof, however the job was completed incorrectly leaving all tiles on his roof lifted which now allows water to seep into the house every time it rains and as we live in the uk, this is very often.
When trying to contact the builders who have done this, we discovered that their 'company' no longer exists and furthermore the owner has now been jailed.
Geoff has been left in a situation where he is now living in a house that is inevitably causing problems for his health and has already resulted in two dangerous accidents such as having fallen down the stairs due to the conditions of the damp on the floor and parts of the ceiling caving in.
There is not a single room in his home that is not affected by water damage and black mould including his own bedroom, resulting in him having to sleep in a chair downstairs and it is continuing to get worse day by day. He no longer has the ability to afford repairs nor does he have any relatives which are able to support him financially.
We urge anyone to help us support Geoff in getting the repairs done to his home as soon as possible because no one, especially not of his age, should be living in conditions as unhealthy as these. Its heartbreaking to see the damage that scammers can cause to peoples lives and we would be eternally grateful if you could give anything for us to amend this.
