The legal team taking a High Court case over the defective blocks scandal affecting thousands of Donegal homes have been inundated with requests from homeowners seeking legal advice.
Head of Coleman Legal, Dave Coleman, was speaking after almost one thousand families across the county joined an information meeting held recently in Buncrana.
The two-day public seminar outlined details of a case being taken by Coleman Legal being underwritten by two businessmen, Shaun Hegarty and Adrian Sheridan.
Last week the Oireachtas held a hearing into the MICA scandal.
A large number of affected homeowners made contact with Coleman Legal in the aftermath of the hearing in a bid to get clarification on a number of matters which may arise if they joined the multi-party court action.
As well as homeowners from across Inishowen, there were many other concerned homeowners from the Letterkenny and Lifford areas.
The main concerns are about the exclusion of the testing of foundations and the fact that many property owners are excluded from the Scheme such as commercial and farm buildings as well as holiday homes.
As it stands many homeowners will suffer losses not covered by the Scheme and also their losses will exceed the proposed Scheme threshold.
Participation in the grant now allows for each homeowner to retain their right to pursue the losses they have not received in a grant, their shortfall.
As a result of homeowner requests for more information, Coleman Legal are to host a series of Public Meetings on Friday and Saturday next.
The first meeting takes place on Friday, July 1st at 7pm in The Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny.
There are two more meetings taking place the following day, Sat, July 2nd at 11am in the Strand Hotel, Ballyliffin and later that evening at 7pm in the Malin Head Community Centre.
The Coleman Legal team will be on hand and will outline your rights and discuss your options.
No appointment is needed and participation is FREE of charge.
