Alice reports that painters seem to be busy in our new house at Alpine View Lane, and EQC have yet again promised that they're sending a cheque for our contents claim. So when we get home from holiday I suppose we'll be going furniture shopping, then we can start moving things into the house. We plan to start living there in about the first or second week of December.
We will probably accept the second of the Government red zone offers, where the Government buys the land and our insurance pays the rebuild price for the house. We're asking for a review of the pricing on the house, though, after we took our lawyer's advice and got a quantity surveyor to review the insurance offer. I suspect several more weeks will pass before we agree on all the details. It's certainly not a process that can be rushed, I will say that.
