Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
The county has clearly indicated liability by agreeing to pay for the remediation of the repairs. Part of the damages connected with the liability is the loss of habitability while the property is being repaired. Thus, the county is obligated to pay for your mother's room and board during the period it takes to make the repairs. In addition, it would be reasonable to ask for additional compensation for the fact that while she has been waiting for this to get resolved, she has not been afforded the full enjoyment of her premises that suffered damages. The county is likely to have insurance for this event and included in any insurance policy where there is a deprivation of habitability, the insurance policy covers the cost of room and board.
