Hope everyone is keeping well in these strange times.

There is a leak into my apartment from the apartment above. The landlord has been contacted twice by the Managing Agents who have given them my contact details but they havenít responded. My tenant has been upstairs to speak to the tenants in the flat above but they wonít answer the door.

I have spoken to my Managing Agent and Letting Agent who have advised I should call the Fire Brigade. There is a child in my place and I am worried about the electrics as the water is dripping across the ceiling.

My tenant is loathed to call the Fire Brigade as they have small children in the apartment above. Should I just call them anyway?

I am abroad at the moment so cannot attend the properties.
