We've had similar prob's. We've also had leaks from our flat into the flat below.
My tip would be to make double sure that the flat above have got the leak fixed. We were leaking into the flat below and we got some plumbers round to fix the leak. They were sure the leak had been fixed, but they were wrong. The work they did fixed MOST OF the leak, but not all of it, so the folks downstairs needed to wait until it was all fixed before getting their redecoration sorted.
We had a similar thing re leaks from the flat above into ours. What I think I learned was that in modern flats the floors are slabs of concrete and that a leak in one place in my ceiling probably doesn't come from directly above. It probably just means that the spot where we see the leak corresponds to a join in the slabs above us. The actual leak could be from elsewhere, but it will only leak down at a point where the slabs join.
...if you press it, they will come.
