With the last weekend’s thunderstorms and rain, water leaked into the 1st floor flat and I am owner occupier below on the ground floor.
The rain water didn’t effect us, but now and then gutters do not cope with the rain. it happened last year once as well.
A leaseholder is demanding payment for a water damaged item from me personally when we are going for ceiling repairs etc. covered by the building insurance claim. Should he not claim for other items on his personal contents insurance?
Instead he is forcing the argument that I have failed to maintain the property which is not true, because even last year we had someone come straight away to attend and this year which he accepts was done.
How can be best handle him?
His claim is for £290, but its wrong to accept what is not our fault.
Thank you for any advice
