hi everyone just found out the main sewer in our garden has been collapsed for many years along with my neighbour. it seems that our garden has dropped and there is the possibility that dirty water has been running under our garden for years. the water company has said they will be renewing the sewer which includes taking down retaining walls etc etc. what is the situation if the broken drains have caused subsidence and also that all of the soil etc is all contaminated?
The drain in my back garden is blocked it is the one where the sink, bath etc empty into is this my responsibility or the LL to get it sorted.
with the recent heavy rain our rear service lane 'filled up' and flooded my garage. the cause of this was 2 blocked road drains. the council had been told they were full on many occasions, they ignored the calls, even from their own workers. i have contents cover on the garage but it will not cover the full damage. can i make a claim against the councils insurer's?
