Who is responsible for the cost of clearing a blocked stormwater drain or pipe?

Are you the home owner?

The homeowner is usually responsible for the cost of clearing blocked drains and sewers, including the section of stormwater drain that runs from your property out to the street.

Are you renting?

If you’re renting, the landlord should cover the cost, unless you have been doing something in your property outside the terms of your lease which cause the problem or you’ve been excessive in what you flush down your toilet.
