Hi, last month an underground water pipe burst on the property we are renting. Everything has been repaired and our landlord paid for the repairs. The plumber also sent through a form to the landlord for her insurance. However, we have now been sent the water bill for R7000 and told that it is our responsibility to pay for it and then claim back from the municipality. Is anyone able to advise me what our rights are as tenants in this regards? We feel that the landlord needs to claim from insurance (her own or municipal).
TIA for your assistance.
