I live in a first floor flat, with one floor above me, and I keep having problems with water coming through my kitchen ceiling from the flat above. Obviously this is because they flat above has a leak somewhere, and several times they've identified what was leaking and stopped it. But then after a while, something else will leak and I get more water through my ceiling.
It's getting really frustrating playing whack-a-mole with leaking appliances and piping. Even if it's something really minor, it ends up coming through my ceiling. Surely flats normally have some kind of protection against this happening? I've never had any complaints from the flat below me, and I've had plenty of water splashed all over my kitchen floor (normally from the ceiling).
Is there something I could do to make it a bit more tolerant to water? Either something to my ceiling or to the floor in the flat above. If the flat above needs to do something, I should be able to get them to do it, since it is really their problem that is causing damage to my property.
