Tenants moved into a property in August 08 and in Nov. reported that the drains from the toilet were blocked. The blockage turned out to be below ground and as a gesture, I paid because they were relatively new and it could well have been a 'building up' problem from previous occupants. I also thought it would be a 'one off'. All was well until last week when they tell me it is starting to 'back up' again.

Can you tell me who is responsible for rectifying this problem. I use the RLA AST and there is no mention. The cost was £170 to have it 'power blasted' and the problem was not affecting any of the neighbouring props. so no sharing of costs.
