No heat yet, No ground on outlets, No lock on front door

Posted by Cosmo Brown on October 11, 2001 at 19:19:09:

When most of my friends and co-workers had heat on Monday and Tuesday of this week (October 8 and 9), I did not. I was so cold the other night and another tennant that I spoke to is also very cold at night. This went on all last winter and I cannot live another winter like this.

I read the rent code on this and my landord insists that he obeys the heat laws by maintaining a minimum of 55 degrees in the building at night, and 68 degrees during the day. But how can I check? Do I have to buy a thermonater? Even if I do, is that enough proof?

Also, I would buy a space heater but the outlets in my apartments do not have grounds. I cannot even use ground adapters becasue the there is no screw hall on the outlet covers.

The lock has been broke for quite some time on the front door.

What should I do?
