We have this awful problem. We just received the engineering report and an estimate for repairs that came in at very close to $200,000. My wife suffers from terminal cancer and does not have a lot of time to wait around for politicians and insurance companies to assess their potential losses.
I cannot believe that the foundation of a home isn’t covered by homeowners insurance! We have done all the right things over the years—paying our taxes, going to work every day, paying the insurance premiums, and trying to prepare for retirement. Now not only have health issues reared their ugly heads, but the home we worked so hard to pay off is now worthless.
The added stress to my wife has been enormous. Now she worries, not only about her mortality, but how I will be able to deal with this issue after she is gone. The insurance companies need to stand up and stand behind those who have stood behind them for all these years. If they are unwilling to do so our elected officials should force them to. Lots of talk and hollow nonspecific promises are not cutting it. We need help and we need help now!!!
