    Well I had a busy week flying to Geneva to collect my sis to come home to Mums to recuperate with her broken leg. She was in hospital 2 weeks and a private clinic for 3 more which was costing her insurers nearly £900.00 per day. Anyway got back late Thursday night and went to work yesterday for 1/2 day.
    Went to my DD's for the afternoon and evening. Oh brought me home at 9.30pm as I had left my keys behind earlier. He opened the door for me and we were greeted by water cascading through the hall , bathroom and kitchen lights. I went to switch on a light and got a shock.
    OH drained down the tank , switched off the water and managed to switch off the electric with a stick. I was in bits and managed to call out the emergency cover chap. This was at 10p.m.and we decided to leave it till morning as he was going to take 3 hours to come.
    So went to DD'S for the night ( didnt sleep much!!)
    Repair chap came this morning and fixed the tank ( something to do with the ballcock.)
    The insurance said I could get a hotel as I cant have the power back on until its dried out and the assesor cant come till Monday.
    So I am in the brand new Premier Inn 5 minutes from home for 2 night initially.
    So any advice of how to deal with assesor gratefully received.
    My hall, lounge , landing and stair carpets are all soaking. My bedroom carpet is soaking too as is my memory foam mattress. There is water in my airing cupboard, bedroom cupboard and some on the edge of bedroom no 3. You can see water marks on the kitchen ceiling and the light in the shower exploded.
    At the moment I just have towels down to soak it up

    So sorry you are in a mess but look on the bright side, everything will be shiny and new when you finally get back in .
    I deal with insurance assessors all the time and they are usually a great bunch and nobodys fools.
    Just be polite and have a few bullet points, don't overload them with questions.
    It doesnt matter how long it takes, they will get you a hotel for as long as it takes - also mention any medical needs etc if relevant.
    If you can, start making a list of what is ruined, also I don't think it applies here but some insurances are void if the house is not checked every so many days while you are away.
    Wishing you a bright shiny home very soon , take care xxxxx

    So sorry to hear this rose.
    In a former life I used to work for insurance loss assessors. They should arrange to get the property dry first and then sort the electrics and replace whatever was damaged - ceilings, flooring, carpets, etc. You are entitled to 'alternative accommodation' whilst your property is uninhabitable through lack of power, etc.

Bit ironic really as I am about to have a new bathroom and possible kitchen so it looks like all rooms will be done now. Only 2nd bedroom has not been damaged which is a shame as thats the one with the oldest carpet. Oh wanted me to tear up the hall carpet today but I said no we must wait for assessor to come. DD has been great and took good care of me last night.
