quesRepair of leakages from bathroom. Who is responsible? No damage by me.

There is a leakage in the ceiling of bathroom of the flat (501) below my flat(601). I've not carried out any repairs/alterations/modifications and the leakage started automatically. Whose responsibility will it be to get the repairs done, the cooperative housing society or me? Awaiting your response.

  • ansDear Sir,
    First you will have to ensure as to where is the source of leakage is, if it is in the flat above your flat then certainly you are not responsible.
    If there is terrace above your flat then the Society is responsible.
    So, please consult expert Licensed plumber and take report or opinion in writing about the source of leakage and submit the same to the Society as well as to the flat resident below your flat through Advocate for your safe side.
    Thanks and regards
