OUR PROPERTY WAS DAMAGED BY THE COUNCIL. THIS WAS BACK IN 2007.THEY KEPT IGNORING TO REPAIR OUR PROPERTY BUT WHEN WE THREATENED TO TAKE THEM TO COURT THEY RESPONDED ON OCTOBER 2008.THERE WAS BAD LEAK COMING RIGHT FROM THE ROOF.

NOW THEY AGREED TO REPAIR OUR PROPERTY BY PASSING US TO ZURICH INSURANCE. ZURICH INSURANCE PASSED US TO THEIR CONTRACTORS BUT THE CONTRACTORS CAME AND THIS IS WHERE THE MESS STARTED.

THEY STARTED DOING THE JOB BUT THEY ONLY CAME ONE DAY TO DO THE JOB. AFTER THAT THEY KEEP SAYING THEY ARE COMING BUT THEY DON'T. THEY HAVE LEFT THE PROPERTY IN A VERY BAD MESS AND NO ONE CAN DWELL THERE. IT IS IN A WORSE CONDITION THAN WHEN THEY TOOK IT. SINCE BY THE TIME THEY STARTED THE JOB WE ALREADY HAD TENANTS IN IT BUT THEY LEFT BECAUSE THE CONTRACTORS COULDN'T DO THE JOB WHILE THEY WERE THERE,SECONDLY BECAUSE THEY SAID THE PROPERTY WAS SMELLING DUMP.

WHAT DO WE DO AS ZURICH HAS COMPLETELY NEGLETED US AND THEIR CONTRACTORS HAVE STOPPED WORKING ON THE PROPERTY. WHEN WE ASKED THEM TO COMPENSATE THE RENT LOSS THEY HAD AGREED FIRST WITHOUT ANY CONDITION BUT THEN LATER THEY STARTED ASKING OUR BANK STATEMENT AND THE COUNCIL TAX TO PROVE THIS. I MEAN THEY ARE TRUYING TO DOGDE COMPENSATION.

WHAFT DO DO NOW AS WE DON' HAVE MONEY TO PAY OUR MORTGAGE AND WE RISK REPOSSESSION?THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR 6 MONTHS NOW.
