The insurance company are about to start to repair the damage (mainly painting, replacing laminate flooring) but are asking for a franchise of 163€ up front, which they say will be re-imbursed when the claim is finalised. Is this correct, should I pay? My neighbour hasn't had to pay anything. ...

I am 'officially' domiciled in UK where I have a property, receive my pensions, pay my taxes. I have 2 children, one in France and one in UK and wish them to inherit equally on my death.

Our Apartment has damp coming through the wall from next doors shower. I have contacted the syndic, our insurers , next door neighbour and their letting agent. The neighbours letting agent has sent a plumber to visit us, without arranging for their client to be available. I strongly suspect they may be trying to link it to an unrelated incident which does not include me. Whose duty is it to establish the cause of the...
