what should i do?

for inspection. i shortly told the superintendent (who is his daughter)
not to do it. She assured me that she will tell her father. Letting it
go at that, i renewed my lease because i have have no complaints up to

misc. repairs and improvements without giving me any notice. i quickly

written in the lease that the landlord has the right access to the
property as they see fit. The lease states "at reasonable times" I

right to increase my rent over this but it has not been a issue for
the nine months she has been living here prior to my complaint. In
short i pissed the guy off. is there any sugguestions for me?

what should i do? should i report to the police about his acts of
