Issues with another landlord owning property next to mine
I own an ex-council garden flat, which I fully refurbished. About a year ago I decided to rent the flat out, but started to experience issues with the flat above - also owned by a private landlord and occupied by private tenants. Water is sometimes leaking through spot lights causing damage to my ceiling. The tenants of the flat above refuse to communicate with me, the city council is unable to get hold of the owner of the property. The land registry gives name of the owner but the address is of the flat, not his own.
I need a bit of advice of how to proceed, surely the other landlord has some responsibility to maintain his property in a good shape and not cause damage to my property?
