We were flooded on 30 December last year along with most of our village. The downstairs was destroyed and flooded with sewage. A company called Chemdry came out and did some tests. They told us there was raw sewage and hepatitis B and C contamination. We sent our two teenagers to Perth to live with my brother as the house was not livable in. C and L said to look for alternative accommodation, we have a small holding so need to be close by to feed the animals and also to kid out goats which are due now. We found a caravan and sent the details - C and L said it was too much then they told us the claim was on hold and was not to be progressed until their investigators could look at it we were visited by a very rude domineering individual called Euan Stewart. Who suggested we could do most of the wok our self's. He passed the claim back to CL who then put us in a hotel 15 miles away from home and the animals. It's costing them £840 a week for accommodation and a further, approx, £340 a week for food. We've been here for about 3 weeks now. All of us in one room. I'm disabled and so is my son but this has been ignored. I think because I have untreatable depression and my son is on the autistic spectrum. We need to get out of the hotel but there are only two domestic let's with in 15 of our home both are unsuitable. One is a very dark place. The other is too small with only storage heating and the lowest heat rating. We found a very close holiday let fully furnished and insulated. This would also let us take our dogs, two terriers and a working sheepdog. CL said they won't look at it as it's £1200 a month. We don't know what to do now. Our MP got involved but no luck. Three other families in the village were all put in holiday let's in the village all more expensive than the one we looked at. Any help or real advice would be great full. Can CL force us to take one of the domestic let's? Can they 'evict' us from the hotel? Can they refuse to keep paying the hotel bills? I've never been in this situation before. So any help will be great fully received. Thanks. John
