A: Based on these facts, it's difficult to determine who is liable for the clogging. You could repost in the Landlord-Tenant section, where an attorney with the best insight into these types of situations would have a better chance of picking up your question. As a practical matter, even if you are in the right here, it might be cheaper in the long run to pay $150 or so to unclog the drain on your own, than possibly spend several times that in legal efforts, lost time, aggravation, and damage to your landlord-tenant relationship - but that's a personal decision. Good luck
