the water tank in the loft overflowed

Expert:  Remus2004 replied 3 years ago.
And what was the cause of that?
Expert:  Stuart J replied 3 years ago.




I
understand that you have opted my colleague out. I don't know why because she
has not answer the question yet.

Why
did the tank in the loft overflow? Usually, there is an overflow pipe which
takes any surplus out through the side of the house and away from harm's way.

Why are you paying rent if not in occupation?

Are you insured for this?

it was something to do with the ballcock it was not rising in the tank so the tank kept on filling with water the insurance company will not let the builders in the house because of the aspendos in the house they say that is up to the landlord to sort out they were having a meeting to day but what the outcome of that was we dont know they dont liase with each other we both work so we dont see them every day we got a cheque from our insurance company to pay for two more weeks at the hotel which does include breakfast and evening meal they said we could end up staying at the hotel for another month that is all i can tell you at the moment nothing seams to be moving fast
