Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Do you know what its made of or is this a best guess?
Sorry- on my iphone- now on laptop.
If it was your best guess and not intended to mislead then you will be fine.
Even if it is something else, as long as the insurance would not have declined insurance for a different type then it should not be an issue
So you need not worry - as long as you had a reasonable basis for the assumption all should be in order
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I can't seem to find a definition of asphalt. I understand that the sticky black stuff is "asphalt" and that the layers are asphalt coated. It's the type I remember from the 70's when workment boiled up "cauldrons" of black stuff then stuck strips to it. I alway thought that was asphalt and understand that's what I have on my roof. Three houses are damaged, and my neighbour thinks it's "felt" but I don't know if the felt is adhered with asphalt...but I think so. I've never seen my roof; vendors & builder told me it was asphalt but I don't have anything written down. I'm just worried I've not been precise enough or have made a mistake.
Yes, I agree with you. Like you I am not a roofer.
But do not worry - you can explain the situation but only if it is raised as an issue.
Mmmm- no- me neither...thank you. You think I should stop worrying!?
Yes I would.
I think you are being too concerned about something that may not even matter.
Can I clarify anything else?
Thanks for quick response, bye!
