Recently had an email from my estate agent saying the following:
"Your landlady came in to see me as the drains were blocked at [address] and had to be cleared professionally. As it is split into 3 flats and one commercial property, she is requesting that the bill be split four ways with the tenants. This will incur a charge of £50 to yourself."
Now... I've never had a problem with the drains. Nobody told me the drains needed or were going to be unblocked. And now I'm presented with a bill for something I don't even know has actually happened.
Not sure where I stand here: but I would have thought they needed to inform me before the work occurs that this is happening and that i am in someway responsible?
Thanks in advance.
