The tenant called in with a ‘slight leak in the bathroom ceiling’. He sends a photo and clearly no way this is just a few days old – he then backtracks and says he’s been away for a few days and comes home to it as it is (really – we are in lockdown!?!)
The plumber goes round today, his view is this has been going on a lot longer than a few days too for sure as there is black mould alongside where the roof plasterboard meets the wall (and where the leak is) indicating water has been sitting in the area for way longer than 48 hours.
I have to repair the leak of course, but the damage may cost a lot more than it would have done if the tenant had reported it earlier.
Can I charge the tenant something towards the bill?
Anyone had a similar problem?
