I live in a 130 unit building in which Con Edison turned off the gas to the building
due to a suspected gas leak on 9/6. The building is working to cap the gas lines in
each apartment, then perform some tests, then fix the leak, then get the building
inspected, then get the gas turned back on. No estimate has been given for completion of
this process. In the meantime, we do not have a functioning stove.
I asked the landlord whether there will be some compensation for this reduction in service
and he said "I don't think so -- it's not our fault."
Are we entitled to an abatement? Any advice on how much is reasonable?
