My Fathering law many years ago had a discussion with insurers about his building insurance I am not sure if it is still true but the house is insured on market price for the area. He successfully argued that he already owned the land, external landscaping and services where all existing, that their premium was grossly over priced to demolish and build a new house was approx half of the market price they eventually agreed with him. It is fair to say that he did not put it to the test, This was also at a time when insurers where bothered about their customers as well. Not helpful but interesting and true

Time for everyone to check the small print on their insurance policies, I suspect not common to have total rebuild but clearly a possibility and need for all to check what is not covered!

A worrying time even if you are convinced that you are covered

I am so pleased that the insurance company didn't try and make Jude pay. My mates had their place demolished and rebuilt after a fire and the insurance paid for it all.
Saw Jude on TV the other night in "The Year Britain Flooded" or a similar title.

Glad part of Jude's problems are being sorted. As far as insurance goes, it may depend on the insurance company although the precedent set by Saga(?) may help.

A couple in Cornwall were recently caught in a similar trap when the cob wall of their house collapsed. The insurance company (the "Pru"), said that it had been caused by frost damage and "Home insurance policies generally do not provide cover for damage caused by property age or maintenance-related issues." Here's a link to the story. Link
Thankfully one set of neighbours are letting the 88-year olds stay with them and another is funding the £30k bill for repairs while they challenge the Pru's decision.

Still, a company has to make a profit: how can they do that if they pay out for claims??!!!!

Sorry, that "guest" was me, I'm away from home and I didn't notice I wasn't logged in properly.

Back to the subject - let's hope everyone else's insurance companies are just as enlightened. After all, I'm sure there's a clause in all house insurances that takes demolition into account, after a fire for example. I expect they are being too narrow in the interpretation of their policies and have loads of exceptions.

Well done the insurance company. I'd rather pay higher premiums because of real claims like this one, than do so because of all the fraudulent claims that are around.
You must be so relieved Judy.

Whoops meant Mary Ellen Carter ~~~~


"For we couldn't leave her there, you see, to crumble into scale.

She'd saved our lives so many times, living through the gale

And the laughing, drunken rats who left her to a sorry grave

They won't be laughing in another day. . .

And you, to whom adversity has dealt the final blow

With ******* censored ******* to you everywhere you go

Turn to, and put out all your strength of arm and heart and brain

And like the Mary Ellen Carter, rise again."

Sentiments understandable I think


Stan Rogers was a brilliant song writer and sang his songs with conviction as do many of our singers be they traditional or singersongwriter where ever life problems become overbearing** and we show due empathy

Extract from above clip:

Yesterday morning, a meeting was held between the owners of the properties on Aelfleda Terrace which were demolished before Christmas following the first major landslip, the cottage owners in Primitive Chapel Yard and representatives from SBC.

On the agenda was a discussion of works that had been undertaken and who would be liable for paying for it – with some of the costs expected to fall upon individual residents.

I saw this item online from ITV Tyne Tees which indicates yet more misery for the landslip victims.
Can anyone shed any more light on this.

Residents whose clifftop homes were demolished after a landslip in Whitby could face huge bills because of uncertainty over their insurance cover.

Five cottages were bulldozed last December on the orders of Scarborough Council.

Now the authority is thought to have billed the owners at least forty thousand pounds each for the work.

But insurers say policies don't usually cover demolition costs.

Jude, Christine and I are doing the boxing day dip to raise funds for the Runswick Bay Rescue Boat an independent inshore lifeboat, i.e. No money from the RNLI or Government. If anyone would like to sponsor our foray into the frankly bloody cold North Sea on Boxing Day we would be most grateful.

This, as I'm sure you all know is typical of Jude, her whole world is upside down and she still thinks about other people. She's not a bad lass is she.
