  • Due to the drain being blocked, we believe this has lead to a burst pip outside of the property. This caused water to run down the driveway, which along with the heavy rain, has come at such a force that it has come over a step and into the entrance hall of the property and spread to other rooms. This has also caused areas of the patio to the left of the property to flood with mud and debris - which will now need to be jet washed to clear. This is displeasing as we have recently paid to have all of the patio areas cleaned.
