If they're in a Lower apartment, then the sink could overflow as a result of water being used by the apartments above them. Water will always seek the lowest spot.

Okay - so, I am a Plumber, and everything is wrong with your statement.

First off, plumbing lines typically get clogged over YEARS of use. So it could have easily been whoever lived there before who made it bad.

Secondly, lines can be used by multiple different apartment units.

Lastly, Lines being used by multiple apartment units can fill up, even if the one that it's backing up at isn't using water.
