Bradford new-build estate homes currently worth £0
Residents on a new-build housing estate have been told their homes are currently worthless due to planning and building failures.
The 13 homes in Odsal, Bradford, were built by developers Sherwood Homes, which has since ceased trading.
Speaking to Rip Off Britain, families said they were left "in a state of panic" when they discovered their current £0 valuations.
The BBC programme attempted to contact the developers, but received no reply.
The estate adjoins a former landfill site, which has not been used for 40 years but a risk remains of methane gas being released from underground.
The developer was required to fit a layer of membrane to prevent gas escaping into the houses, but homeowners have no proof this was done correctly.
Some told the programme the development had not been completed in line with planning permission and final building compliance certificates had not been issued.
