help! i'm freezing....

Posted by mike on December 23, 2000 at 21:48:05:

same sad song, no heat or hot water.

i moved into an old building that is being renovated - i took one of the newly renovated apartments. well, since oct there has been no heat at least once a week on average. as of last week, we started having days without heat....same story, boiler's being fixed, etc.

well, now it's almost christmas eve, and we have had no hot water since dec 13 and no real heat since dec 19. they are trying to fix it I think, however it's not working. heat finally came on last nite however off again one should have to live like this. and there are children and elderly persons in our building as well.
we've all been calling and filing complaints, but to what avail i don't know.
help! can i/other tenants withold rent, and if so what are the repercussions?
