I am no expert.But if the person is as you say. Call the ambulance.A person like that should be in the hospital. (I guess). Well another option is to attempt to have a guardian appointed for her by the courts. But then she will never be able to vote again.Why not ask the landlord to try and say he needs to come in the apartment to paint, instead of laying all the psych stuff on her and then when they paint they have to clean up the garbage.Tell the landlord you will pay the 30 for the paint. And paint it yourself if shes that
crazy she won't even know your the tenant.
: : I am amazed as to why you do not offer any advise to the original poster about her serious problem. Rather you would sit back, with Kerry, and nit pick over rational responses made by me.
: Our post did indicate the proper procedure was. Inspect with notice, get a violation if warranted and get the LL to pursue it legally. Self-help is not an option for the LL. All tenants have rights, and LL are quick to concoct excuses to deny those rights.
: : This is your web site and you must have had a reason for the message boards other than to try and make a fool out of a lay person answering a post.
: You're doing that quite well without our help.
: : The law was written with " common sense " as it's central focus and to live under the conditions that the tenant describes is against the law. You seem to want to let her live in a horrible situation other than to tell her what to do or who to call. I will no longer offer any advise to anyone on this message board.
: The law neither makes sense, nor is it necessarily fair (else, everyone would win all the time, eh?). We're not saying it's OK or legal for the tenant to suffer those conditions; but we are saying your solution is illegal.
