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.

Okay. Too far away for me to help.

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