What if my pipe burst whilst I was on holiday?
|Escape of water:|
|If you are on holiday and you come back to a leak, the damage could be quite substantial if not caught in time|
|Typically you would be covered for a burst pipe. If it was to be considered to be caused by wear and tear, because you had not maintained your property in a good condition, the claim may not be paid out (repudiated), but each claim is taken on an individual basis|
|Try to locate the source of the leak and turn off the water at the mains, if necessary. Contact your insurers. Your insurers will either appoint a plumber, or advise you to source one yourself. The quicker you stop the leak the less|
