Superintendent Services

Posted by Michael on January 11, 1998 at 18:07:36:

According to the Renter's handbook:
"If your building has nine or more units, a superintendent must
live in the building, or within a 200-foot radius. In addition,
the name and phone number of the superintendent must be posted in
a conspicuous location in the building. If there are fewer than
nine units in the building, a phone number of whom to call in the
event of an emergency must be posted."

My building has eight units. Someone visits the building several nights a week to take out the garbage, and once a week to mop the floors. No one, however, is available on a regular basis to tend to maintenance issues that occasionally arise. Is posting a sign with the name of an emergency contact the extent of my landlord's legal obligation for providing superintendent services?
