I own a ground floor flat which is rented out. The tenant has made me aware of a big damp patch in the middle of the bedroom ceiling. Apparently, there has been a leak from the washing machine in the flat above which is rented out. My ceiling will need painting and redecoration. I contacted the Managing Agents for the flat above who have told me that I should claim on my contents insurance. Is this true? Is there a way I can pursue this further to ensure that the landlord of the flat above pays for painting costs? My insurance does not cover for leaks from the flat above but even if they did, why should I push up my premiums for a problem arising from someone else's flat??
