    Apparently the pipe under the sink in my en suite has sprung a leak. Luckily I was home, and it's in the absolute best place in the entire house for this to happen.

    the shittiest of deals my son, but chances are if a pipe were to leak or burst it will always be in the absolute worst place.

    Been there, a few times - doesn't look too bad!

    We were sitting up playing cards one night with a friend, when all of a sudden, there was a drip from the ceiling right on the discard pile.. just as we looked up to say, "WTF?", the gyprock let loose with a big splash.. what a mess - and right in the middle of the kitchen ceiling.

    Fun times.

    It's not bad at all.

    Swap the pipe and let it dry for a couple days then new drywall and paint.

    Good to go.

    If you do it yourself; or whoever does it; make sure its dry as can be before repairing the gyproc! You don't want mold

    So the plot thickens. NOT a plumbing leak, it's a roof leak.

    Water is pooling behind the shower in my en suite and dripping down. This will be expensive.

    I'm assuming you had your house inspected before you bought it? Shouldn't s/he have picked up on this?

    An inspector is not going to pick up on everything. They can only inspect what they can see.

    I have to get the roof cleared this morning so I'm giving 2-20 year olds some cash and they're doing it.

    My boss is super awesome and letting me hang out here for the day.

    This is going to get stupid expensive. :lol:

    Not gonna pick up on everything.

    What I hope is this can be linked back to being preexisting and that the previous owner knew about it.

    Yeah, but it's not like this happened over night. I'd like to hope that something as serious as a leaking roof would be noted when I have my future house inspected. It seems like a major oversight.

    Edit: Good luck proving that the previous owners knew about it.

    didn't you get a inspector to look over everything before you bought it?

    I'm not actually going to try to prove it, but if the proof falls in my lap I'll run with it.

    So if thats the case, do you really have any leg to stand on? I'm a house rookie so forgive me if this is an ignorant statement

    In terms of what? I don't care if it's preexisting or not.

    Insurance is paying for this.
