Are you saying they neglected to report this for two days and so the damage is now greater?Are you sure this is from your faucet and not the pipes?
I am sorry for the delay. The Internet is down in my area and I am now trying to answer from my iPhone.
If the flood was caused by something that you own and not because of a problem with one of the common elements then you would be liable for the damages.
However, if you can show that the owner of the unit below caused the damage to be greater by neglecting to report the flood when they knew it was happening then a court, if it went that far , would not require you to pay all of the damages but would apportion the damages between the two of you.
Do you see what I mean ?
