The specialist* came around, told me that the people who fucked up my flat are a bunch of monkeys**, that they did an incompetent job in the room they "fixed", and completely ignored the other room. He says there's about four days of work needed to fix all of this (lots of joists need to be ripped/replaced).

I phoned the loss adjuster, who was sceptical. I'll be forwarding the report as soon as I get it on Monday. Hopefully it will make the case for me. We will see what comes out of it. But I intend to be a lot more proactive about sorting this out than I was a year ago, and I don't intend to have the previous lot of people back in if I have any say in the matter.

*You could tell he was a specialist because he knew the latin name for the kind of wet-rot growing on the floorboards.

**Well, he told me that his firm get a chunk of business from clearing up this other firm's messes.
