What constitutes and emergency and some other questions

Posted by Mar on August 23, 2001 at 12:40:24:

Does a fast leak that suddenly appears through one's kitchen ceiling with water damage apparent in a matter of hours constitute an emergency calling for immediate repair? What are my rights on this?

Does a leak coming from outside through a window causing flooding during every rainy day that went over a month without repair give me any grounds for rent witholding or a recoup on a next payment?

Does a toilet that is spurting water up and all over the apartment constitue an emergency?

When I moved in, I had two locks. Both broke. ONe was fixed the other is a hole in the door. Landlord tells me he's responsible for the knob only and why do I need two locks anyhow? What are my rights? Shouldn't he pay for it?

Is a request for me to be from 7am to 5pm for a new refridgerator delievery reasonable or should I be give an more normal window of time (i.e. 4 hours?)
Thanks for any and all advice!
