Landlord bought a rental property, fully inspected, and everything was fine. After about 2 months or so, first tenant moved in. First day using shower, tenants reported to landlord side that main drain was clogged, Waste water backed up into tub and shower, and floor, which caused some water damage of floors and walls. In this instance, who should be responsible for the water damage? Tenants or landlord? Tenants argue it’s their first day in the house, they got nothing to do with it. Landlord argued that house was checked out fine during inspection, therefore, it must be tenants who did something that caused the main drain to be clogged. Landlord wants to held tenants responsible for the damage, and deducts the monetary damage from tenants’ deposit. Any advice to solve this myth? Thank you so much.
