Hi Georgie,
The b*astards got me on this one last year.I noticed one of our walls seemed damp.This damp got worse over the period of a couple of weeks so we got a 'man' in.He found a pipe running through the wall.The long and short of this is, the pipe had split, but on the outside of the wall in the alleyway that runs down the side of the house.To reach the burst, they had to remove the paving and dig down about 3 feet.The pipe had burst some way from where the wall was wet and the water was running along the outside of the pipe, and into the property through the hole drilled in the brickwork for the pipe.In the end, it needed about 12 feet of alleyway digging up.It took 7 hours to do the job and I was handed a bill for 1040.The insurance company told me that they would only cover the cost of the damage caused by the water.They would not cover the cost to 'trace and repair'of the pipe.Apparently most policies have this clause in them now regarding escape of water.So think very carefully if you need to make a claim.
