Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Who is liable depends on what the source of the water is......if the pipes within the walls are leaking, that's likely the building owner's liability. However, if the flooding was a result of someone leaving the bathtub on and overflowing, then it would be the liability of the resident/owner.
