Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Sorry about this title ... but it's the only thing I can think of right now. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
Just when I was getting out to sort a few things out in my garden I noticed that some of the tiles had given way and there is a bit of a ditch in the terrace ... Right where the 1 of the rain pipes hits the ground (if that's the correct term for it). This rain thingy is getting rid of the rain water for 6 floors of the apartment building where I live and I don't really want to know what's happening if more water hits there.
I've already sent the landlords an e-mail explaining the situation and I am also going to send them a photo of the situation and then they can come by and deal with it. I just hope they're going to come by on monday since that's my only free day every single week.
Other wise I'd have to take some hours of work and I don't want to do that right now (just came back from a 2 week holiday).

A down pipe leading into a soakaway by the sound of it. Or does it connect to the drains?
If it connects to the drains you could have had a collapse, this is not good.

The soakaway might have the same problem, either way, the rain coming down might not be moving away from the building and could lead to damp problems.
They need to get it sorted.
You'll need to keep nagging. Point out fixing drains costs lots less than property repairs.
