flood the neighbors above - what to do?Question exciting, perhaps, for all residents of multi-storey buildings.In fact, such "flood" occur much more frequently than can pokazattsya at first glance.Painfully familiar to many picture: evening, you go back to work, still warm memories of the scale, only recently finished repairs (eg "flavor" in all known law meanness prefer to happen when your nest is already polished to a high gloss), casts a leisurely look your interiorand freezes in a silent scene - an impromptu shower from the ceiling falling off wallpaper, parquet swollen.

try to highlight the main aspects of your tactics in this situation.Competent approach and adequate behavior - half the battle.


Where to start?↑

With the adoption of tablets valerian.But seriously, stop panic and most soberly assess the situation.For the "flood" has already happened, and it does not change neither hysteria nor a colossal scandal.But a nervous breakdown, you can "earn".

Be prudent, sensible.This will be the best start of the operation "Y".Stock the persistence, patience and be prepared to sacrifice a certain time period.If you are flooded neighbors, can not particularly rely on their voluntary consent, implicitly say goodbye to the contents of her purse.

So take a deep breath ... and run to the "heroes of the occasion" - you need to stop the evil, that is to block the water, tighten the taps and so on. It should also be promptly disconnect the mains, switch off alldevices.

Identify those responsible ↑

It all depends on what exactly burst.If it is, for example, a common riser, then in front of you to answer the housing department - the operational status of the add should be regularly monitored by the organization.

But the souls of a broken battery or damaged hose liner to the mixer means only one thing - the proceedings will be directly with tenants (masters) apartment.

Where to go, if you flooded the neighbors?↑

inquire / warning neighbors (do not stretch the pleasure) and prevent the possibility of a short circuit is removed from outlets throughout the home appliances and other electrical devices, you must apply to the serving home organization - GEC, DES, Reu and urgently call duty specialist.It is not excluded a situation where the home with abundant water leakage can not cope.

Well, the water no longer gushes and now the representatives of the management company must be drawn up an act, indicating the reasons for water leakage (failure of the mixer, a breakthrough radiator defect flexibleswashing machine), alleged the defendant (GEC or neighbors) and the amount of damage caused to your repair property.

also act on the drenched must contain the following items:

  • commission;
  • date and time of receipt of the application;
  • time during which eliminates leakage (accident).

Attention!This act can not be described by the defect furniture, wiring, appliances.This is the case?Do not worry and do not continue to insist on the inclusion of data points.An independent appraiser (who should be the next your official "guest") when evaluating certainly will in another document, "this paperwork," all the affected items.

addition to representatives of relevant institutions, the act must sign the victim and (ideally) the guilty party.And as representatives of a caring society - other neighbors.But if the "other" problems usually do not occur, then the involuntary organizers of "flood" is not always willing to give out autographs for instruments promoting the devastation of his own pocket.And that, in principle, is understandable - in the refusal to recognize the disastrous involvement occurs quite natural for any human protective reaction.

The harsh reality
harsh reality: a classic reaction housing department

With regard to this particular act, he must be made on the day of the accident.It is clear that the esteemed committee in the face of the chief engineer, master plumber and extremely busy people and an irresistible desire to visit your abode soaked momentary obviously do not have - but it is necessary to decisively bring their "hand".If your zazyvaniya be vague and uncertain, believe that "we will come tomorrow" become "wait until next week."

Attraction disinterested neighbors ↑

closed the door behind ZhEKovskoy suite, continue to "build" a line of defense.Invite the neighbors to a larger house, uninvolved in the incident in order to win the support of as many witnesses."Destruction", with them, even to remove the camera or camcorder.It would be nice if the neighbors agreed to be in the picture.

These "home-made" evidence in some cases turn out to be very helpful.

meeting with an independent appraiser ↑

ZhESa Commission, as you know, was the first but not the last.Not later than 20 days after the accident, you should visit more than a reputable company - independent appraisers / representatives ZHREO (superior over ZhEKami organization) to produce a defective act.

Here the track, that shalt have all nayavnye losses in the detail view.Remember: it's your moolah.This document should reflect as accurately as possible the quality of surface finishes and designs.

Demonstrate Courage Commission all the consequences of the flood - walls, furniture (even the contents), household appliances.Insist on fixing every little thing.If due to the fact that you are flooded neighbors, the apartment damaged telephone line wiring, expensive equipment, notify the presence of authorized persons about it.In the act, of course, there should be a corresponding entry (mark).

In no case did not proceed to the elimination of the consequences (removal of wallpaper, removing the laminate) to visit the company's valuation.And do not rush with its "appeal".After all, the whole "beauty" often climbs over a couple of days: water has the ability to linger in the intermediate floor and form new stains.

with defective act, just as with the act on the drenched familiarize both sides by hand.The reluctance of one of the parties to sign the document is fixed.A copy of the act and the perpetrator gets, and the victim.If the neighbors have flooded apartment is not only to you, then this document should be made available to all participants in the process internally.

I think this ends the bureaucracy?We hasten to disappoint you - no.

Budgeting for damages ↑

In your treatment it will be engaged in the VES or ZHREO.To complete this item can be accessed in a different office, but onaya necessarily have a legal right.

All costs associated with paper tyagomotina can be safely included in a future lawsuit.

Specialists estimate components will perform their work on the basis of the defective act and regulations in force.It must take into account the quality of materials and their suggested retail price.Do not be amiss to provide your expense receipts, check if you, of course, as a precaution they took care of.

What can I say, these lawsuits do not contribute to the strengthening of friendly relations between the floors.I would like to remind you that before going to court, you have to be firmly convinced that the perpetrators - it's neighbors in person.
