I take it nothing was found with the camera,

Sounds like a collapsed drain, or a section of the drain has dropped, this forms a lip where all the paper gathers causing a blockage.

You need to get a camera down to check all the drainage pipes, manholes etc.

Try someone other than the normal drainage company, it may be that it's a job he doesn't fancy doing - and if you're landlady is going to pay him twice a month to jet the drains - he'll be happy.

The CCTV will show all faults, this is the only way you will find the faults and find why it keeps blocking.

Ask for a Quick look to find the fault, should cost between £40-100 depends where in the country you are
