A NEWLY-MARRIED couple are distraught after returning from their honeymoon to find their home filled with sewage.
Siobhan Hall, aged 26, and her husband Richard said the flooding in their flat in Bryngwyn Village, Gorseinon started in February.
She said: "At first we thought it was a blocked drain and it could be fixed quickly, but the problem kept happening. I have not been able to use my bath or toilet since the start of the year and the sewage will often leak into the hallway. We are fed up of the stress of the problem.
"My beautiful brand new apartment that I am paying a mortgage for is unliveable at the moment and is a right mess."
At the end of the last month the couple went on honeymoon for a week, thinking the problem had been temporarily fixed.
When they returned home they found the apartment flooded with sewage again.
Mrs Hall said: "It is stress I do not need. Planning my wedding and honeymoon was stressful enough and at the end of the day I do not need this as well. I have really had enough now."
The couple said they were currently living in a hotel as their flat was not safe in live in. And Mrs Hall said neighbours Charlotte and Lewis Rowden were also experiencing problems.
A spokeswoman for OM Property Management said: "We have huge sympathy for Mrs Hall and other Bryngwyn Village residents for the problems they've experienced in their homes. As soon as the problems were reported to us, we immediately commissioned an independent survey report to identify the cause of the problems. We have been liaising since February with the property developer (who commissioned its own report), the owner, their insurers and loss adjusters to try and put right problems caused by blockages to the building's sewer pipes.
"Loss adjustors have attended the site, contractors and our local property management team were on site last week as part of our efforts to resolve the issues. Our property managers have talked to owners and tenants to keep them updated. We are doing all we can to make sure the insurance claim is processed quickly."
