The public drain outside the property is flooding and make access to the property difficult. Water backs up almost to the front door

I have only been in the property since the beginning of September and in that time there has been a least 6 occasions when the drain has blocked in heavy rain with in a matter of hours the drain cannot cope with the volume of water which then floods back towards my front door and does cover a proportion of the front garden. Once rain has stop it takes 2-4 hours before the water seeps away leaving my path covered in filth which I then have to clean up. I have spoken with the previous owner who lived here for 9 years and this has been an ongoing problem and appears to be happening more often
