I have been repeatedly flooded from the flat above me since 2008. The Burlington management company said that they cannot sort it out, no way to get access to mend the bathroom above. I have just received this:
“The new lease states that the rights of access to the flat are for the landlord to enter to inspect and notify the tenant the tenant or any wants of repair to the demised premises, they do not however extend to allowing the landlord to carry out works to the demised premises. The obligations within the lease only allow works to common conduits or building common parts. The solicitors have advised that to progress this issue you must either commence your own claim against the owner for nuisance, or give the Landlord an indemnity to take action directly for breach of the lease provisions. The Landlord however is not obliged to commence any action against the owner.”
What to do?
