We purchased our home from the bank 5 years ago (it was a foreclosure. The house is now 10 years old). This. Winter, We noticed water damage in one bed room and found 2 twelve inch cracks on the side of the house. Also, the door to a patio above that bedroom has a door that is very hard to open and close. We had a reliable contractor look at it and he said the house settled and it has caused a lot of damage. He thinks the damage may be due to the foundation not being laid correctly. We are uncertain how to proceed. Should we file a claim with our insurance company? Go to the contractor? The bank? Thanks
Should we file an insurance claim if there is structural damage to a house when it is caused by settling?
