Hi I am new to the site but have
Hi I am new to the site but have visited it on many occasions. I see that there are lots of knowledgeable people on here and I was wondering if anyone else has found themselves in the same predicament....I own an apartment in a old palazzo in Liguria ( there is no administrator ) . About a year ago I developed a leak from the apartment upstairs (there is a flat terrace) and it has been getting worse. The apartment upstairs is empty but I approached the lady who owns it and she won't fix it. I don't live there and when I last visited the place is covered in mould, all the plaster is crumbling and it rains in the flat too! I have been to the vigili but they won't get involved and a solicitor wants to charge 500 euros just to send a letter....any ideas what to do? Any advice greatly appreciated as it's driving me to despair!
