Wall collapse - insurance nightmare
by louloutanner • Tue 25 May 2010 18:36
Hi, I wondered if anyone out there has any advice for me. I have a very small house in Auzances but the boundary wall along the road looks to be my responsibility (it is about 30m long and 2m high). A section of the wall has collapsed and much more of it apparently looks dangerous. So I contacted my insurance company (UK based) advising that there had been very bad weather and the builder stated that storm damage was the probable cause but they have dismissed it immediately stating that there specifically had to be severe gale force winds and I also had to provide proof that other properties in the area had been damaged. I have just had an estimate of 9000 Euros. Frankly I am shell shocked and don't really know where to go from here! Any advice would be very much appreciated.
