    Who should pay for water leakage repair?

    I remember a few weeks ago the neighbour downstairs came to my door and said that water was leaking from his ceiling, he asked if I left any taps running or something that may have caused it but I said no as there wasn't anything like that in the flat and that was the end of that.

    Now I have received a repair bill from Thames Water asking for payment, I think the neighbour got one too.

    I rent my property from a housing association, should I be paying the bill or should it be my landlord?

    The owner of the property, ie your landlord the housing association. Unless caused by negligence or abuse, by the tenant.

    It says 'customer side leakage' at the top. Description is down as 'CSL section 75 repair'.

    They must think it was my fault or something? I wonder if I should be contacting the housing association or should I tell Thames Waters to contact the landlord?

    If it's something you weren't aware of and couldn't get a repair carried out - contact Thames Water and let them know you're going to contact your landlord.:thumbsup:

    It says above. Bottom line is they could have repaired it from his neighbour's side under his flat without his knowledge.
