The upstairs neighbor flooded your apartment, does not want to compensate for the damage caused and does not respond to your correspondence?

The upstairs neighbor flooded your apartment, does not want to compensate for the damage caused and does not respond to your correspondence?

In this case you can hire a decorator or fix the damage in your property by yourself and then demand the money compensation from the neighbour. Collect all receipts and invoices. If the neighbour refuses to pay, you submit a small court claim against your neighbour - https://www.gov.uk/make-money-claim . If you win, the enforcement officer may seize and sell the neighbour's stuff (car, computer, TV, etc) or take money from the neighbour's bank account and transfer it to you. To submit the court claim you need a written evidence that the neighbour refused to pay.
