I have a flat on the 8th floor. The pipes are buried in the concrete floor and when a leak happens its very difficult to detect. The first time the block insurance by the Management Company paid for thermal imaging to detect it. Again in 2013 when it happened again the new management said the block insurance only covers common areas. Does any one know what happens with house insurance when this sort of a thing happens in a flat. Does that mean we have to get a separate household insurance?. Luckily we are insured with British Gas and although they said its not covered any more they are coming to fix it. Also the people below whose flat has got damaged say they will sue us if it happens again because we need to put the pipes to run externally. British Gas said they need to see if its possible because it depends on how it was done originally etc. What am I supposed to do? CAN ANY ONE SUGGEST SOMETHING PLEASE!
