New Rectory (cont)

The pain continues! We bought a house in "showhome condition", ready to walk into with so many attractive features, and now it is just a soaking wet shell with tiles ripped off walls to gain access to burst pipes, holes drilled in ceilings to let water through, holes cut into walls, again to access pipes, carpets ruined, two shower units, a combi boiler and possibly a bath needing to be replaced. It was a spa bath that I was looking forward so much to relaxing in. Today it may be totally gubbed.

The extreme cold has caused 15 burst pipes and a central heating system disaster. We are not insured for this, and because the house was a repossession we have no comeback on the sellers.

Today I weep..... Oh! and the plumber can't come back until Monday!

Unbearable - and unbelievably bad luck. More growls...

Surely the Seller is liable, Kenny, be the Seller re-possessing Bank or Other ?
And surely there are several days' grace during which problems appearing are legally the responsibility of the Seller ?
Do please ask a Legal Eagle about this - the diocese has some....

The bank has disclaimers which give them no responsibility
