Instead of actually flushing (or pushing) the water down the drain, it just fills with water and drains out over the course of a few minutes. Anything liquid will drain out but nothing else (not even toilet paper) Because it seems like it doesn't even try to flush anything away. And also when my neighbour upstairs flush it comes to my toilet. What can possible be the problem,and what can i do?

    Sounds like there's a blockage in the pipe downstream of your and your neighbor's toilets. – Daniel Griscom Aug 1 '16 at 11:19
  • definately a blockage. Try a plunger first, both bathrooms. – shirlock homes Aug 1 '16 at 12:53

That's most likely a clog beyond the point where the drains of your toilet and your neighbour's toilet join.

You are going to need to snake that out.
