Rent Abatement on Unpaid Rent

Posted by Sher on July 13, 2000 at 11:02:57:

To make a long story short, I moved into a NYC rent-regulated apartment 10/99 and have not paid rent since 1/00 due to such problems as mice infestation, water leaks and damage, no heat/hot water, non-working light fixtures in the kicthen and bathroom, etc. After repeated calls and letters to management and several housing inspections, I sent a certified letter to my landlord notifying them that I would not pay rent until the problems were corrected. I would like the problems fixed, but moreso, I do not want to pay full rent for the months that I had to endure seeing mice running across my bed, in my kitchen sink, and coming out of my backpack on the subway. Any advice? My landlord has made no attempts to collect the months of back rent.
