More sh*t news for me...
The builder (who HAS been very good up till now TBF) who is doing an extension has just made a right old c*ck up - he was working on the central heating yesterday and somehow (he said something about a lock-off valve or something not working), when he switched it all back on, it started leaking. He didn't realise as he is working downstairs and the leak happened in the loft room and therefore has been leaking for 24 hours. The loft is flooded, it has come down through the ceiling in the bedroom and spare bedroom, soaked both those carpets, soaked the bedding/matress/base, filled underbed cupboards through. It just started coming into the ceiling in the front room.
So the question is (it might be obvious) - whose fault is it? He said that this valve that should have been working wasn't working, but surely he should check, not just assume.
And if he isn't liable, would we stand a chance on our house insurnce?
What a start to a damn year we have had.
