How can they fix the leak?

I own an apartment in a Community in Mallorca. Last year we noticed a leak in our shower room. Our neighbour above has the same layout so the leak was obviously coming from his shower. Our neighbour said he would “deal with it.” I repaired my ceiling and I thought the problem was over. When we returned to Mallorca in January the shower room ceiling was leaking again. I informed our Administrator and she said she would ask our community insurance company to investigate. Three other apartments have had the same shower room leak and the insurance company paid for them to be repaired. My neighbour requested that the Administrator arrange the repair. Since then my neighbour has evaded all appointments for a plumber to call. I am at a loss regarding what steps to take.

Owners in a Community are obliged to allow entrance into their property for necessary repairs of a problem affecting other owners. You could suggest that your Administrator inform your upstairs neighbour that on a certain day at a certain time, she will enter the apartment with plumbers to fix the problem, whether he is at home or not.
