On Sunday, due to a clogged toilet in the apartment upstairs, gallons of water started leaking through my bathroom, kitchen, and living room ceilings. We moved MOST of my stuff out of the way, but after half an hour of water leaking, trying to see what was going on in the apartment above and running to get the super to stop the leak (finally) -- the ceiling in the kitchen collapsed and fell all over the place. There are now cracks in the plaster of the living room as well. What are my rights in terms of compensation for water-damaged items, witholding rent, or breaking the lease? The lease is up in January, and I planned to move out anyway. The apartment is rent-stabilized, in Brooklyn.
