: I am presently in court with my landlord for backrent, which I am
: holding because of his failure to do repairs. My bathtub hot water pipe
: burst and had to be turned off almost three weeks ago and the super said
: that was not an emergency. He had an empty apartment he needed to get
: together for rental?!!!! Now something happened to the boiler and heat
: was bursting forth in my apartment which made the radiators in both my
: living room and my daughter's room leak severely. My carpet in both rooms
: are soaking wet and mildewing. My daughter's room carpet is so wet across
: half her room that she can't go to her dresser.
Has an inspector from the court come to the apt. yet? It's always good to send a certified letter to the owner outlining the problems that need to be taken care of. Since you are already in court, the court will order the owner to make the repairs. You should make sure that replacing the carpet is on the list.
