It's a bit long winded. Basically we are in I think it's classed as ssfa. Our estate was closed down due to safety and we all had to go into private as no MQ available.
We have lived here for just over a year. Ever since we moved we have had recurrent issues with the boiler breaking down and having no heating or hot water. On one of these occasions I got a portable heater and wacked it in the living room. My kids were freezing and sat huddled in front of it.
After about 15 minutes I noticed a funny smell and then realised it had scorched the carpet. It's a thick pile so didn't go right through but has left a horrible mark.
I then realise I forgot to add carpets on to my insurance when we moved in, so am uninsured.
Is there anyway I can get round having to fork out for a new carpet, it's a big room and I dread to think how much it will cost. Could I plead the heating probs and say it technically wasn't our fault.
Obviously this happended over the winter have just been sticking my head in the sand about it. Cant believe it happened.
