Preventing Water Damage In Rental Properties

Just out of interest, a tenent of mine jammed a suitcase on top of the hot water tank feeder tank, jamming the ball valve down so the water was running down the overflow constantly, I got a phone call from the management company saying water was going into the flat below , when I got to my flat not only was the overflow running, but the push fit connector in the cupboard had come apart!! So water was going downstairs, the upshot was that I had to pay the excess on the redecoration bill for downstairs.I was told by someone that any excess should have come out of the maintenance charges but the management company say no.
