flooded basement room

Posted by AG on December 05, 1999 at 21:23:20:

I rent the basement of a group house in VA. It is w-w carpeted, and one of my roommates did laundry Fri while I was at work - somehow the the laundry sink overflowed all over the place. I have done laundry since and did not have this problem...I dont know what they did. Now my personal belongings are wet, not to mention the entire hallway carpet. I informed my landlord on Fri night, and as of Sun night noone has been out to dry/replace the carpet. I DO NOT HAVE A LEASE. This is a short term month to month rental. What are my options? I would like to replace the carpet and take the money off my rent, as well as withhold a daily amount for inconvenience for every day the carpet is wet. Plus my personal belongings. HELP!!
