I`m a private landlord and rent out a top floor flat. Last year the flat was fully refurbished including new bathroom and kitchen. Flat below is also rented out.
The letting agent for flat below contacted us regarding stains on their roof. On inspection our flat had a small leak under the bath due to a new pipe connection. The amount of water under the bath was minimal and did not seem enough to go through the floor into downstairs.
We requested photographs of damage, but photographs sent to us by downstairs letting agent do not look like water damage at all and are in a different area to the water leak. The letting agent claims that the flat has just been repainted and want us to cover repainting both ceilings.
The photographs received of the damaged ceilings do not look like freshly painted ceilings either.
