I am all worn out
I am seriously fed up.
Some of you may recall my ongoing house insurance claim for subsidence which I have been fighting them about since late 2010!!
Repairs - or should I say 'bodges,' were carried out initially but it did nothing to stop the cracks starting all over again.
Ever since then I have been fighting to get something done again.
I paid an excess fee (£1,000) first time, then when it started all over again they expected me to pay a second time. Another fight ensued, and eventually I won and they waived the second excess.
Thing is, now they have told me they are finally going to get on with the repairs, after finding the cause was neighbouring tree roots all along, even though past surveyors and bore holes said there were none!! 5 trees have now been removed.
The 2 men who visited a couple of weeks ago said I have got to move out as they need to have the floor up and remove my cooker, washing machine, fridge and freezer.
I won't be able to get food or wash my clothes, let alone where on earth can I go with 5 dogs? I will not kennel them, they wouldn't cope plus it would cost a fortune for 5.
After chasing the insurers yet again yesterday and today, they have finally sent me a copy of their site meeting, and most of what is written down is nothing like what I agreed with these men at the time.
They are now saying I won't have to move out, that I have some roof work done myself BEFORE they can start (news to me), that they will move my white goods into the shed (they know jolly well there isn't any room), it will take 3 weeks (they told me before 10 days but allow a fortnight),
they told me someone will show me new flooring samples to choose from, yet now there is no mention of that.
They are removing all kitchen cupboards, - wall and floor - where the hell are they going to put everything?
Every room in my bungalow is going to be full to overflowing with machinery, white goods, kitchen furniture, cupboards and units, and boxes full of things, so that the kitchen is entirely empty.
How the hell can I live there like that? We can't stay locked in my bedroom only for three weeks. The dogs won't even be able to access the garden.
I am in tears here. I am dreading it and don't know what to do. I have really had enough of it all and I'm tired of handling everything on my own.
Sorry to go on so, it is not like me, but all this has really got to me and worn me down now.
