Good afternoon. I got a business in a block with apartments above. Due to heavy rains, I got leaks on my ceiling coming from the terrace of the property above. Is the owner or the community the responsible of the repair? Thank you

Good afternoon. Firstly, we need to confirm by the title deed of the constitution of the community if that terraze is private or part of the community.Secondly, we need to know the origine of the leak. If it is due a break or lack of maintenance.
If the leaks are really due to the deterioration of the layers of isolation (common item) and poor proofing, would be responsible for the community, since it works required for the maintenance and upkeep of the building. If on the other hand, is due to another cause as the poor state of the terrace for example, liable for the owner who is in charge of repairing the damage caused by the use and enjoyment of it, whether you’re a misuse it or impairment by the passage of the years
