The duplex we are looking to buy has some plumbing issue. Apparently, bathroom upstairs overflows and now the water drips down passing the floor, ceiling, and to the first floor living room. Ceiling is now has some discoloration... What would be the problem and how much would it cost to fix the problem and the ceiling?

This could have been a one time problem from a clogged drain that has been cleared and all that is required is to use a stainblocker and repaint the ceiling.

Or it could be a problem bad tile on the show and the walls have rotted and it will cost 10 of thousands to fix.

Or it could be something in between.

Or it could have nothing to do with the bathroom, but be a roof or wall leak.

You need someone to inspect it and even then they might not be able to give much detailed information until the area is opened up.
