I am the owner/leaseholder of a small ground floor studio flat and my flat has been badly damaged by a leak coming from the flat upstairs. The source of the leak was confirmed by the managing agent’s contractor on the 6th of February 2018 and since then I have been chasing the owner of the flat above to rectify. I have lost my tenant and the building insurers have covered the rental loss but I want my flat to be repaired and this leak to be resolved once and for all.
The owner of the flat upstairs has been taking his time (even though he is claiming on insurance as he is saying that the leak from his flat has been caused by other leaks from the flats above him). Anyway, the point is
– he was informed by contractor’s report on the 6th of February 2018 that there is a leak from his flat and to date, he has started the “repairs” but they haven’t been successful as this leak is still ongoing to date.
Could you kindly advise or tell me what are my options?
Anyone can recommend a good lawyer?
Insurers are not refunding me the council tax I have to pay because the tenant left and all the other utility bills (not much as the property is empty but still…)
