Water leakage from above flat

Dear Sir/Madam,

For more than year my parents are facing water leakage from the ceiling in one of the room. We spoke several times to the flat owner who stays above us to fix this issue since we cannot do anything on our side. But he does not want to repair his bathroom. Now the problem is that the leakage starts to grow more and I'm afraid that it can provoke electric shocks or fire.

As my parents are quite old and do not have sufficient funds, could you tell us the procedure to follow?

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Anand

Anand,

Try to talk to the association (if there is one).

 

End of the day, you may need to share the cost for repairing the bathroom.

 

good luck

try social reconciliation or else give application to SHO as he is casuing nuisance.

Anand (Consultant)     21 June 2013

Thanks Srinivas and Sudhir for your quick replies. 

The flat owner who is creating this nuisance is the President and I don't think there is any association since there are only 6 appartments in total. I understand that I need to repair the ceiling once the above flat owner stops the leakage from his toilet. However I don't understand why I need to pay the repair charges for his toilet.  Maybe each time we have this issue, he'll ask us to pay.

Could you please tell me what is SHO and where to give the application? My parents are living in Chennai.

Sorry to ask you these kind of questions since I don't leave in India for past 14 years and bit cut off with all the things happening here.

I was very surprised when parents told me that the above flat owners would not repair. In the country where I live presently this kind of problem is normal and person who creates this leakage to the below appartment is responsible to repair. Is there no such law to protect this kind of problems that the flat owners face?

What exactly you mean by saying that the builder has not handed over the Society to flat owners? Is it that the Builder had applied for and registered the Society even before all flats were sold and that he has not quit after selling all the flats? Is it a Co-operative Society?
