fire in our building 4months ago and still no access

Posted by dee on May 02, 1999 at 12:54:25:

After a fire in our building we had limited access for about 1 month and no access since. Our LL say that the insurance company demanded that the building be sealed for safety reasons or they wouldnt process the claim. So most everything we own is still in the building and the LL won't give us a return date or anything else. What can we legally do? Can a LL or an insurance company do this?(There are no offical signs on the building saying it is unsafe, just one posted by the store downstairs saying that they will return soon) Are we as the "homeless" tenants eligable for any claims or reimbursment? If we decided not to return to the apt., what can we expect the LL to do? Does our LL have to relocate us?

Thanks for any help you can give us.
