Alulod ng kapit bahay na walang downspout?

This person has chosen to hide his/her identity.

Ang tubig ulan na galeng sa bubong ng kapit bahay namin ay dumederetso sa pader namin at pumapasok mismo sa bahay namin or hallway. May laban ba kami kung sakali sa korte na ang pag uusap? Sarado kasi pag iisip ng kapit bahay namin kahit pina barangay na.

Yes, po basi po sa sinabi ninyo . According to the Civil Code of the Philippines particularly "Drainage of Building- Art. 674. The owner of a building shall be obliged to construct its roof or covering in such manner that the rain water shall fall on his own land or on a street or public place, and not on the land of his neighbor, even though the adjacent land may belong to two or more persons, one of whom is the owner of the roof. Even if it should fall on his own land, the owner shall be obliged to collect the water in such a way as not to cause damage to the adjacent land or tenement." Kailangang gumawa po siya ng paraan na macollect ang rainwater from his roof na hindi pupunta sa kapitbahay. Before po kayo magfile ng kaso kailangan po muna ninyong magfile ng complaint as Barangay, mag picture/magvideo po kayo kung ano ang situation ninyo during rainy season. Dalhin po ninyo ito during barangay conciliation baka sakaling kapag makita po niya ito aayusin na po niya or else kapag hindi kayo magkasundo kailangan po ninyo ng certification to file action para po sa pagpafile ninyo ng kaso. Lumapit nalang po kayo sa abogado if darating kayo sa puntong ito.
