Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I have just had a major flood in my downstairs flat, my insurance has agreed to pay for new kitchen bathroom with no problem, but contents are not covered.
However, the disabled tenant has had all his electrical goods destroyed (this was a major flood raining in flat) he is not insured. The flood was from a burst pipe in the let flat above. I have contacted the agent of the owner and sent photos and prices of items damaged and offered to replace all for a settlement figure of £1000.
The landlord has told his agent not to give any details to me and he will not pay or supply me with details of his insurer (it was his fault due to his guys doing a poor job on fixing original leak from his flat) and will not respond.
Any ideas on the way forward? Can I charge the Agent? Can I insist on Insurers details?
Any help or suggestions (legal ones) would be appreciated.
