Evening all,

Just had a text from a tenant to say that there appears to be water around the ceiling of her front kitchen window from upstairs. Given we've just had the warmest weekend of the year so far it's safe to say it's not rain ingress.

She has spoken with the people in the place above but they say they don't think it's anything they'll have done, despite it being below where their kitchen sink is.

Sounds like there may be a leaking pipe between the properties. I need to inspect the lease in detail but is this generally the sort of thing the freeholder would sort by using the funds from the monthly service charge as they're the ones insuring the building?
