Then that empty house tenants left and it flooded underneath with a burst water pipe and furniture and my boxes of kitchen stuff and books !
It all happened at time of lockdown!
your insurance company should be able to organise cleaners to sort through whats not ruined, clean up any mess and make good any damage.
We only have building insurance, not contents.
It’s not like it’s all worth a lot it’s just a pain we can’t go to sort it ourselves, enjoy being in the area (Hervey Bay) for a bit as well, the water went on the ground not on top of everything, and thus, creating a breeding for mould.
We have everything stored sitting above ground contact on bricks. It’s like a split level house, with concreted garage underneath and then further under is dirt, this house could be made into 2 story, hubby has that dirt area sealed off but added more air vents thank goodness!
Anyway, I’m happy the painter is painting the inside of house. Mind you I liked the different colours inside, and one wall feature was that blotchy multi colour look from the 90s. Appealed to my inner hippy!
Now it’s going to be off white throughout house - anemic but fresh and light I suppose. Agents always saying it needs updating blah blah.
Honestly what is it with everything needing to be white lately?
Our house we live in now for nearly 28 years still has a peach colour from the early 90s
and I heard that colour is making a comeback!
Re: daughter, she expressed concern recently she does not feel safe lately. Maybe because of recent lockdown.
Maybe because the good guy next door used to keep an eye out for her is she was okay, and had since sold and moved, which she feels is a loss.
She has a nice Chinese family a few doors up across road that I know will help if any problem.
The rest of court have new renters and bogans all the time. One of the permanent live ins does nothing but complain all the time against the neighbours to police for stupid things. Known to be a nuisance that one.
So we had a talk last night on phone, daughter texted sensitive stuff as houses are so close together she often hears people talking or sneezing from their homes.
She is going to stay with a friend from dance, in an apartment for a few days as that is her instinct to go.
I say to trust it and do it.
We also spoke of having a house mate for say $100 week which is cheap for a fully furnished house but it helps with security and pays for utilities at least. And it helps someone rent to live on the cheap. It will most likely be someone from dance that she knows.
To be continued....
