You will need to look at the fine print on your tenacy agreement.
A lot of WCs these days have no external overflow, if there is a problem with the fill/float valve the excess water runs down the flush pipe into the WC pan. It is a shit idea. You need to be alert to this problem, it's quite hard to see the water running into the pan sometimes.
There probably is legal recourse but it would cost big money to implement it.

fault?:

Can this be proved (i.e. can a jury be convinced)? Will the plumber acquaintance swear to it in court? Is he considered an "expert" for such plumbing problems?
Those are the crucial questions for your case.

chellielou,
This is not a "home repair" question. It is a legal question. Find a local legal forum or a tenant's rights group.

It is my *opinion* that you are correct. Getting the agent to assume liability - even partial - will be difficult. Do you have small claims courts in the UK?

We do but it's for stuff like unpaid bills and non supply of goods paid for etc.

What's the essential difference between unpaid bills, non-supply of goods, etc and this water bill issue?
