Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays.
If the water emanates from the the flat upstairs then you have a potential nuisance cause of action and negligence aswell. Therefore I suggest you undertake the following steps. Before I proceed do you understand what I have stated?
In order to assist in proving negligence you will should secure a the services of a surveyor or plumber to find out the cause of the leak.
If the cause is due to the neighbour's negligence then the insurance company for the neighbour's property ought to foot the bill.
The alternative route is to commence court action against the neighbour to seek to recover the costs to repair the damage caused.
I hope I have clarified the position.
Thanks and stay safe.
