Dripping Air Conditioner

Posted by Amy S. on August 26, 1998 at 19:35:11:

I rent in a co-op building. My air conditioner drips on the awning of a
commerical property on the first floor. He has complained to the board
and they have told me to take care of it. It will cost me over $200 to have
drip pans or funnels and tubes put on them, which he will not help me with.
Since he was most concerned about rust, I bought him plastic sheeting to put
over the drip space. He seemed satisfied, and hasn't even bothered to put it
up. However, the head of the board is continuing to pester me about it. I have
lived in this building for almost 3 years, and no one has complained about it
before. All the air conditioners I see on our block are dripping,
especially when it's humid. The repair guy who looked at it said it is
working fine, that lots of air conditioners drip. Does this board member
have any right to continue to bother me about this, when the guy who
originally complained is satisfied? Is it my legal responsibility to
"fix" this problem? Any advice would be appreciated.
