Can you sue the owner of the condo above you for damages? I know lawsuits are definitely not pleasant or amicable… but in this case if it really isn’t your fault and you can prove liability, you may be entitled to some financial assistance. Not a lawyer at all so I could be WAY off base…

That sucks!!!  I would definitely cancel your venue for now.  Then you won’t be out the money if you end up not being able to use it.  And maybe once things settle down a bit, they’ll still be available, or your plans will have changed.

So sorry!  Good luck!!!

See if your venue can hold the deposit. I know with my venue, I could cancel and they would hold the deposit and I could reschedule up to a year later and use the original deposit.

I COMPLETELY understand how you are feeling.

A little over a year ago, a guy above me tried to fix his toilet…while drunk. He wound up breaking it and falling asleep afterwards. I woke up on a Saturday morning to water seeping into my place through the bottom of the walls.

Luckily, a crew responded within an hour and started the clean up, but all of the floors in my unit were warped and destroyed. This all happened three days before Thanksgiving and I had to stay home to deal with the clean up.

I was so overwhelmed that we lived with concrete floors (subfloors) for months.

The fact that the first company told YOU to buy dehumidifyers is rediculous. The kind needed to tackle the problem are HUGE and they have hoses that you have to run either outdoors or into a large sink (for some reason, I can’t post a pic, but here they are in my condo: http://bit.ly/mspjde). They are the size of a rolling recycling bin and we had 2 in my 785 square foot condo running 24 hours per day for a solid week.

I’m so, so sorry you are dealing with this.

By The Way, the guy above me never came down to apologize. He actually left town that afternoon to go spend a week with his brother in France so he didn’t have to be inconvenienced with the clean up. Jerk!

Glad you are moving forward with the wedding. Also wonderful that you are working together as a team. Good Luck with everything!

(On a side note–may I make a suggestion for a CZ ring. Later on, you guys can upgrade to a diamond, if you want, and know one will ever have to know it was a CZ)
