Water Leakage repair recovery
« on: January 28, 2014, 12:34:46 PM »
I reside on the second floor of a housing society. The flat below me had some leakage problem but around the main entrance. He asked me to let him do some repair from my flat to stop the leakage. Initially he offered to pay the full expense and also replace whatever floor tiles will be broken. Since the living room would look ugly with half different tiles, i asked him to replace the complete flooring. Initially he agreed, so i told him to give me in writing. Also since i was sure that the leakage might not be from my flat, as it was nowhere below my bathroom and this type of leakage was also visible in other flats, i refused to allow part replacement of the floor tiles and also any work without getting in writing. He however one day in a fit of anger, got a contractor and drilled holes from his ceiling, breached the floor slab and injected some expanding type foam which broke through the tiles in my house leaving a damage of around 5ft x 5ft. I filed a police complaint and got the entire flooring done and have submitted the bill to the society so they can claim it from the other party.

My query is,
- What step should i take next in order to ensure full payment is recovered?
- In such cases who is at fault and who is liable to pay?
- Society is asking me to accept 50% payment, since that is the rule for sharing leakage repair cost, but i refused since this was a deliberate act and want full payment.

Also attached is summary of events for your reference.

Please advise at the earliest since i will be meeting the house owner this Sunday, 1st Feb, 2014 to discuss the matter.
