Neighbour's boiler leak caused ceiling damage
I live in a condo which is an 8 unit building with people next to us and above us. Few days back our upstairs neighbour's boiler leaked and we had lot of water leaking from the ceiling of our kitchen and damaged part of our ceiling. The neighbour got their boiler fixed and the leak stopped. They were very nice to accept their responsibility and made an insurance claim. The problem is that their insurance is offering us only $500 whereas the work to fix the ceiling would cost more than $2000 as appraised by an appraiser. We don't have insurance and are now in a fix as to what needs to be done. If we proceed legally can we get them to pay the remaining amount? Any advice will be very much appreciated.
