"..for some blocks I've taken over admin for."
Make sure you are visibly listed as a Point of Contact on those records in the appropriate RIR, so that folks who get your request can verify you. Even better, register in your RIR's RPKI program and generate a ROA for it. Info about ARIN's here: https://www.arin.net/resources/rpki/index.html
Then yes, notify their upstreams/peers if needed and post here if things get really desperate - have your records in order first.

Subject: "authority" to route?
Is there a common practice of providers to vet / validate requests to advertise blocks?
Who is the "authority" when it comes to determining if a request for routing is valid?
Is it the WHOIS data maintained by the various RIR?
It seems I'm playing whack-a-mole to get some routes shut down for some blocks I've taken over admin for.
If I email the contacts for the AS in WHOIS, and get no response, or a negative response, should I start going to their peers?
Some practical advice would be appreciated.
