My landlord and I have had a perfect interaction for 3 years until very recently we have fallen out. We had a leak onto the kitchen, coming from the wall into the stove and even affecting one of the sockets. She got a plumber in and they established in came from a crack in the flush overflow pipe. The course of action was to prevent the flush from overflowing (something it does from time to time).
I believe this is silly. Sooner or later, the flush will overflow again (that is why the pipe is there for) and water will invariable fall again all over the wall and kitchen instead of traveling to the garden via the pipe. I also don´t understand why she wouldn’t fix it unless she plans to sell the house soon and perhaps pass it to the new owner, since it isn’t an evidently noticeable problem.
I want her to fix the thing properly, I am very worried that the leak goes directly over electrical sockets and appliances. However, if the flush is working property, there is no problem at all. At the moment there is no leak but I know it will happen again sooner or later.
Additionally, the leak caused a number of bulbs to pop in the ceiling (or so we believe since they all went off at the same time). She called an electrician as well as the plumber and the electrician told her he couldn’t find any fault and that simply the bulbs needed replacement. So she is paying for the plumber but sending us a bill regarding the electrician as it was “only bulbs”.
Is she acting fairly?
