Question:

There is a leak on my ceiling. a painter came down and after many months he said that it is still wet and not drying. he brought down a plumber who said that there is definately a leak in the apt upstairs. in order to fix the leak we have to find it. either by breaking the floor or by sending camera- both are quite expensive.1- who is responsible to find the leak? 2- if i am responsible and it turns out there is a leak does he have to pay? 3- if i have to pay does he have to let me do the work?
thank you

Answer:

Answer from Horav Yosef Fleishman Shlit”a.

Make an agreement with the neighbor which plumber  to take and if it is his fault he should pay and if not you’ll pay-some maintain that you should share this expense but perhaps this is better. If there is a leak in his pipe he has to do the work and pay for it-if it isn’t you’ll have to fix it.
