My 2nd floor let property was vacant and work was going on. The gas engineer had taken the boiler down, and shut the water mains till new boiler went in.
However, another contractor was doing the bathroom wall panels, and let the mains on and did not notice water running for about one hour and damaged downstairs property and bottom most.
I had no insurance at the time, the bottom most insurance is chasing me for about £55,000 in repair cost. Am I responsible as landlord? Am I responsible as uninsured landlord? Is it not one who was doing wall panels responsible?
