Main water pipe

Post by L14 » Sat Apr 09, 2011 1:59 pm

Need help regarding unexpected repair bill. Main water pipe leading from house out to the street has dropped away from street connection. Am told it is homeowner's responsibility. Quoted $6500 as cost to repair. Don't have anything
near that much to pay for it. Live in Omaha, NE and had to declare bankruptcy 6 years ago but have been current on all bills since then. Are there any programs, angels, anything to help with repair bill like this?

If you have a problem with water pipe, did you call the water company? Depending on exactly where the problem is they may be the party responsible for fixing it. Who said it was homeowners responsibility? Try this link for local programs.

You may want to look into weatherization. Also some community action agencies may be able to write a low interest loan for home repairs. While it is a loan, the interest rate will be very low and thus save you substantial money.

Hello, my wife and I are 56 years old and we need help with repair or replacement of old boiler heating system in our home. A water pipe is now also leaking. Wife on unemployment and I work as a child care provider through child care connections. We do not have the funds available to fix, repair, or replace the old steam boiler in our house, so we currently use electric space heaters to heat our 3200 sq. ft. home and worry about kids getting near them. We just got approved for SNAP and Medicaid last week. Our case worker informed us that some program may be available to help us with this need. So, that is why we our contacting you. Any advise or help with this matter, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Some community action agencies in Wyoming may offer home repair programs, loans, etc. Or maybe try weatherization. But that will not help with your water pipe. Maybe LIHEAP can also assist in Wyoming with the boiler issue. Anyway, maybe try those government programs, and find applications to Wyoming community action agencies as well as their phone numbers.

Had to move out of my rental home due to the fact that the rental agency failed to tell me that the house was in foreclosure. Me and my 3 kids are currently staying with my mother, but need to move out due to the fact that she has been having issues with a main water pipe leaking in her house. She currently has no kitchen and is in need of getting a few rooms redone due to a burst pipe that has caused water damage to her home.
