I have a town house on phase one and last year while some friends of mine were visiting there was a problem with the drains.It started with a bad smell in the downstairs toilet and gradually got worse and worse. They woke up one morning and sewage was coming back up into the toilet and also up the shower plug holes. As I was not there to do anything they went to security who did nothing,they then rang a friend of mine who then called out a plumber. The plumber went out and had a look and told my friend that the problem was not with my drains. it was the drains in the street that was the problem. They were not adiquate and they were totally clogged. It was a majer problem it even affected the garage, there was leakage coming out of the pipes in the garage. and he needed to call in a company that could do the job. They brought in the big machinery and eventually cleared the drains This left me with a large bill which had to be payed. And I did pay it although i can hardly afford it as i had just lost my husband.
Anyway as I thought it had effected everyone on that block [ I know this as while they were clearing the drains a lady came out and said that she had also reported the problem to security, who did nothing ] I went to marisol with all reciepts and she was prepared to give me the costs, but I said that i would deduct it from my next community charge, which I did.
Then came the surprize. marisol told me that the president thought that I should pay the bill, and now they want the money back..I So my son on my behalf emailed marisol and the president to discuss the problem. He did'nt even get a reply from either of them as I did not when I emailed them. and now they are sending me bills and the amount has doubled.I do not know the predent but I thought he was there to represent the peopleon phase one.
I have always payed all of my bills promtly as I know I should but I draw the Line at paying community bills and also if the drains are not adequit don't you think it should be investigated before it happens again. Also if anyone has any thoughts on this matter Iwould be glad of the imput. regards fluff
If the lady that was there at the time reads this could you please contact me as I would like to get this sorted out.
