Q. My home was severely damaged in the Cumbrian floods in November. No repair work has started and my child and I are still living in rented accommodation. My insurer, Tesco, commissioned a report on the state of my property, then rejected it and commissioned a second. The first report said a water channel had been cut beneath my home: the second says there is no evidence of this and the insurer refuses to investigate further. I have been told the insurer will pay only for repairs to damage that can be seen and, even if it could be seen, I could not prove it had been caused by the flood. Despite their argument, water entered my property again in February. Before November, I had a 17th-century farmhouse that did not flood and was not a flood risk. All I want is my home reinstated to the condition it was in before. AT, Cumbria.
