i have a buy to let property, building has 3 flats, mine is on the first floor, other 2, ground and 2nd...

there seems to be a blockage in the pipes and it's spilling out of a whole in the wall on the ground floor (air vent next to it is blocked too), its not pleasant....

anyway, who would be responsible? the flat that is causing the blockage or all 3 flats as it's a shared main sewage drain??

looks like its a big problem and walls will have to come down to investigage and clear the blockage... ARGH!

currently 2nd floor and ground floor flat are pointing the finger at my property!!!

any experience of this and advise would be greatly appreciated! thanks

Do you pay common buildings insurance?

yes we do, would this be an insurance job?

Contact the freeholder/landlord/managing agent. If it's outside your flat then it's part of the comunal property and they need to get it sorted for you.
