It's a leasehold flat and the buildings insurance is within the managing agents jurisdiction. Unfortuately the place has been badly managed for years despite some nudging from em and a couple of other residents. Then without warning the company changed. The new company started to complain about the lack of funds, tried to up everything, until our solictor sent them a copy of the lease with clauses highlighted in yellow. That shut them up. Now they assure me that the claim is with the insurers, but it has taken 13 months for them to lodge it. If the delay is found to be a reason for the insurer to refuse to pay then I am going to have to come back to the UK and go to court. Such a palaver but possible.

However, my tenant is happy, she has a new bath and (I hope) the tiling is still in top condition.

This is the worst part about being an ex pat landlord; I can't control how things are done first hand. I always did like to be the bossy one and it is hard just listening in!
