I thought it was a good price, all that done 3 bedroom house with ensuite for $3600

We only have building insurance, not contents.
Burst water pipes fall under building insurance don't they?

If they do, then the insurance company is responsible for the resultant damage. At the very least they ought to clean it up.

Maybe aussie can shed some legal light on it.
I'd have to see the Policy.
We are insured with Budget Direct.
The plumbing repair was less than excess.
it's not the plumbing repair cost that's the problem, it's the cost of rectifying all the damage
The pipe that burst and leaked water ended up on the ground (making it muddy) not on top of all the stuff, but...the real problem was the mould forming from the moistness of the ground, and the darkness of the underneath of the house.
I saw the photos taken of the ceiling under and was mouldy...so it's a clean up of mould, getting rid of things smelling mouldy, and hopefully my books in cardboard boxes don't get mouldy smell.
Kitchen stuff can be washed.
I have a feeling we may throw stuff away, we have a trailer to go to the tip.

When we were there last, all was good, and dry and clean, and we get it treated for white ants, and put down lots of cockroach bait. We made sure everything was all working and good and so forth, then it was rented. Now left just before the covid lockdown, but, it gives the house a chance to be painted as we wanted, then doing a re-evaluation and see how it goes, probably not good with real estate dropping due to covid?
Have to see how that pans out.
Anyway, the painter is doing a good job, sanding and cleaning walls, going to make it all the one colour, including gloss paint on the skirting boards, window frames, door frames, and doors, and every room painted off white.
Can't wait to see the finished photos.
It had to be done eventually to freshen it from the different coloured painted rooms...although I liked it...except for one bedroom that was orange!
Hated that colour.
Bathroom should look nice too after getting dull pale blue into white.

your insurance company should be able to organise cleaners to sort through whats not ruined, clean up any mess and make good any damage.

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 :giggle 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....

Things will change soon.
Your daughter remains here, I gather. Do you have special reason for your concern for her.? Sorry I guess that is a really nosey q. :sad

Your rental property flooded from a burst waterpipe, and stuff you have has been soaked.?

Nothing to be done but long distance communication. Isn't that what you'd normally do.?

Don't stress.. there isn't one fucking thing you can do about it.

Won't be long. Cheers :buddy

hey lols, you won't be able to go harbour town anytime soon ... borders are to remain closed until at least Sept
No no nope! Can’t be! Not listening lah lah lah 🤨😩
what's the problem Lols..?
Daughter up there alone and we can’t go up there.
She could come back with a hefty flight cost but would have to go into self isolation for 2weeks. But it’s so cold here, we say stay up there.
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!
So we have to wait!
I did organise a painter this week. So that’s happening. I picked paint colour from Bunnings to tell painter.
I just want to go up there so we can clean up under house and throw out whatever, fix whatever.
It’s our livelihood and we can’t access it :sad

I think with our low infection rate, was only 2 last 24 hours, borders should open by July! Surely!
But I’m concerned for daughter on own all this time with dance school closure and everything so she was hermitized.

If by next month no promising opening up for Queensland, then she should come back to Victoria.

I feel sorry for all businesses up there, offering half price accommodation but no one can go up there!

I know the premier is being hassled bigtime to open the border, but imho we need at least another fortnight to do so.
We need to see whether recent relaxations in restrictions in other states, as well as our own , has caused any spikes in infections.

We don't have enough testing to feel there is no risk, so we wait. I'd think it was most important to test people, rigorously, not just a one-off.

Qlder's should be out supporting other Qlders, now that they can.

I really hope people realise that flying around the world, fancy-free, is a thing of the past. !!

I could see a Virgin Qld.. a smallish airline that truly served the outback. Oh well.

Tassie has lifted some restrictions at least within the state. Launceston Farmers Market is reopening—with strict social distancing, be in and out quickly, only one family member to be in the market area, etc. Dunno if border closure is still in place.

So there’s a god dammit situation that is irking you!
That’s gotta hurt more than your knee!

yep ... I've been kinda lucky with the knee, virtually pain free throughout the whole drama. Before during anf after the surgery. Uncomfortable? sure, but not a lot of pain
The real pain is to the hip pocket. :grn
