A Grade II listed Victorian house next to where luxury homes are being built has subsidence.
Neighbours living in the converted mews house in historic St Peter’s Square, Hammersmith , have noticed cracks in the walls since Crest Nicholson began building work on an adjacent site facing King Street more than a year ago.
They have accused the developer for causing the problems, however a spokeswoman for Crest Nicholson blamed a tree in the front garden of Albion House.
The property shares an abutting wall with the St Peters Place development of 33 apartments and eight townhouses, which have been marketed at between £625,000 and £3million.
Geordie Kidston, brother of fashion designer Cath Kidston, has lived in one of the converted flats for 25 years.
He said: “Our chimneys have shifted and I’ve got water coming down my wall. The structure of the building has shifted.
“It’s been ongoing for six to nine months. They’re just denying all responsibility. There has never been any movement in this house at all, ever.
“They’ve also knocked down a wall in our garden which they haven’t rebuilt after several months.”
The spokeswoman for Crest Nicholson said: “We are aware that neighbouring Albion House historically has been subject to cracking and movement as a result of the tree in its front garden.
“As a result, we have been working with residents and their appointed surveyor since November and have a watching brief to monitor for any signs of further movement.”
The damaged wall will be fixed in due course, the spokeswoman said.
