Thats jumping the gun a little bit.
As far as diseases go the OP would have more chance catching something from a public washroom then from his bathroom in my opinion.
Having to relocate him is not warranted as well as the repairs can be done in one afternoon.
In my experience the tenant leaves for work in the morning and by the time they get home its done.
Lets just hope the OP's landlords get on it right away and are as quick to respond as I would be.
As far as the neighbour goes,there is a good chance they didn't even know as it could have been coming from the pipe in the floor that they can't
see.If it was an overflowing toilet then they should have been smart enough to shut the supply to the toilet before it overflowed.
I can sympathize with the OP but from the other end of it.
Most people get freaked out when this stuff happens but alot of the time these things are easily fixed and usually not half as bad as they think it
For me its an hour of plumbing and a few hours to drywall the ceiling and put the first coat of plaster up.
The only thing to do in these situations is stay calm and just roll with the punches til its over.
If the OP is being treated unfairly and nothing is getting done then he should go the legal route but only after it is very clear because the legal
route can get messy and might actually cause more grief then good sometimes.
