Folks need to seek your advice.

 

Recently, my neighbour from one storey below mine informed me that water from my bathroom floor leaks through their ceiling.

 

Some work might be needed to resolve the issue.

 

As we are staying in old HDB flat, what is the best way to address the issue?

 

1.  Contact HDB and get HDB appointed contractor to do the work.

2.  Get an independent contractor to do the repair work.

 

Would there be any subsidy from HDB for the repair work?  

How should the payment be split?  50-50 with neighbour, or 100% on me?

 

Many thanks.

Depends if HDB will help. Sometimes HDB will foot half bill, and the remaining half borne by you and your neighbour.

Just because you've got more posts than me doesn't mean that you're right.

I did before and it was 50-25-25. Hdb-me-neighbour, goodwill repair they call it. It was a messy 3 days work but now I heard is only 1.5 days, some kind of new method so less messy too.

Done that at my dad flat.

Call HDB. They send staff to your flat and your down stair neighbor flat to check the situation.

Quote price for repair. If both flat owners agreed, proceed with repair.

About 3 days to repair due to one day required for waterproof. Cost to split 50-50 after HDB pay 50%.

The repair will be done at your bathroom.

Your down stair neighbor will not be affect. He just need to agreed with the cost.

i kena as a resident below, call hdb to force the neighbor upstairs to fix the problem.

 

If the building is too old, hdb will some time understand that they have to bear some of the cost. Then soon the estate will have upgrading project.

Seek help from the MP in writing to HDB for subsidy and need not fork out much of the cost.

No need to go MP directly, once you notify HDB, their officer will do it so that you + neighbour only pay 50% of the cost, HDB pay 50%.

huh? got 70 yr old HDB? 70 yr ago i dun think got HDB set up yet leh...

Which area is this?

 

Anyway, like what everyone here says, it's HDB pays half of total bill, and the balance split betw upstairs and downstairs, and only upstairs got work (inconvenience) involved. Downstairs maybe just paint the affected part a bit can already.

 

I used to kanna as both upstairs and downstairs.
