Who should pay for cat litter leak damage?Make Text Bigger
I am looking for some advice please, I received a call whilst on holiday from the letting agent for the flat below mine saying they had to get the police to break into my flat, a locksmith to unlock the lock on the door and a plumber to put the water off as I had a leak flowing into the flat below and they weren’t able to get a hold of me or my tenants.
On the report I received from the plumber it stated that cat litter was being put down the toilet and it had blocked the pipe and ended up in the flat below. The invoice was for £300.
Should I pay this or should the tenant be responsible for this bill ? The tenant was previously informed that pets were not allowed in the flat and as far as I knew she didn’t have any.
Your words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated.
