Electrical repairs long over due/Building mgr. harrassment

Posted by Kathy on February 16, 1999 at 14:49:29:

Wrote my landlord a letter 30 days ago asking for repairs in my apartment. This is the 2nd letter the first letter was 4 months ago. Although some of the issues are minor some are not. Such as the electricity. One of the outlets is warm to the touch and we are unable to use it. The others are emitting sparks. By New York law can I bring in an electrician and deduct from my rent or do I have to file a complaint first? Also included in this letter was the concerns I had regarding the harrassment from the building manager. I do have copies of intimidating messages left on my machine by the building manager. Does this factor in at all?
