I have a rental flat, the rented flat above has had a leak from their bathroom into the ceiling of our flat for at least two years.
Due to the construction of the ceiling the true extent of the issue has not been obvious until now, there was two layers of rockwool soaking up the water as did tow layers of plasterboard. The landlord of the flat has told us on numerous occasions it was nothing to do with his flat it must be a pipe from our water supply, however all our pipes come from underneath.
We have finally discovered that his bath was not sealed to the tiles and the water from the shower has been pouring down the wall, as I say for years!
Maybe I was naive in thinking his water, no fault of ours, he pays, it would appear I am wrong, what do others think?
