Today, I came home to a flooded apartment and water still pouring from the ceiling. The woman who lives above me is shocked that I would consider her responsible for the damage and doesn't think she should have to pay for it. FML

This is how OP approached her:

"Well I woke up to get me a cold pop and then I thought somebody was taking a piss. I said oh lord Jesus it’s a flood. Then I ran out, I didn’t grab no shoes or nothin’ lord Jesus, I ran for my life. And then the water got me wet, I wasn't even horny....ain’t nobody got time for that."

If you're leasing the apartment and the cause of the leak is a broken pipe (for example) then it would be the owner's responsibility.

Either way, I hope you have owners / renters insurance!


This. If you file a claim with your renter's insurance, they'll pay you and then collect from the appropriate parties, whether it's the upstairs tenant (and her renter's insurance, if she has any) or the landlord and his insurance as the owner. If you don't have renter's insurance, you're likely going to be stuck lawyering up and hauling them both into court. Good luck.

That is exactly what I have been trying to say! Alieze people who are saying that's so mean and sue her are people who clearly do not prepare for anything. That's why they have renters insurance and car insurance and all that great stuff.

What you could do is inspect her apartment, if she is innocent, she would have nothing to hide. I'm sure a brain-dead excuse like that would make her as dumb to leave evidence behind. Look through her garbage for wet towels or perhaps her laundry to see if anything is really soaked. That is evidence enough.

Sucks OP, she should have at least manned up to the crime.

What are these "Civil Rights" you speak of, 65, I'm sure the local precinct would be delighted with him taking the initiative against crime.
