We suffered three floods in our apartment- the first while

Customer Question

We suffered three floods in our apartment- the first while on vacation a pipe broke in our bathroom flooding the entire appt. with 2 inches of water. the 2nd was a nail ( 2 )was found puncturing a heating pipe along the wall causing the second flood because the man putting the baseboard on shot the nails into the pipe. This caused a slow leak that was not detected until a spot of water showed on the rug and when the nails were pulled out water came shooting out to flood the bedroom, the 3d flood was when the painter had fixed the wall and noticed a nail sticking out he pulled it out so he could finish painting again water shot out and flooded two bedrooms and hear I sit with three industrial fans and one very large dehumidifier blowing air all through out the apartment. This has been going on for four months. We have lost a significant amount of money in computers, two silk antique lamp shades valued at $1,200, we were forced to live with my son in law for seven days because during the first flood in November of 2015 the apartment was un live able, it had 12 industrial fans blowing and two industrial ed-humidifiers. The land lord says we should have renters insurgence. There's nothing he can do for us.

Just to clarify, none of this was your fault. Is that correct?
