My wife and I and 2 small kids just moved into a great house being managed by a large letting agent. Have just found the downstairs loo is blocked causing sewage to overflow into the toilet’s room.
When the drains guy came to unblock it (sent by lettings agency) he said that this has been going on for years because there were signs that it had blocked before and outside downpipe had been excavated in order to unblock. So its a known issue.
My question: has the Landlord broken the law by failing to inform us that the house has an ongoing drain problem?
