SUING! L/L IS RENTING ME A LEMON AND WANT ALL MY MONEY BACK

Posted by PIERRE FREYRE on February 20, 1999 at 00:08:42:

I HAVE BEEN A TENANT SINCE 10/98, SINCE THE START OF MY LEASE I HAVE NOTICED THE APARTMENT AS A COMPLETE SAFETY HAZARD FOR MY 2 SMALL CHILDREN. HPD HAS INSPECTED AND HAS DETERMINED THE APT. TO BE AN EMERGENCY. GROUND FLOOR APT. FLOORS WARPED, NO SUB FLOORS, HELD UP IN AREAS BY PIPING (BUILDING 80 YRS OLD). I LIVE ABOVE THE BOILER. L/L TAKING ADVANTAGE OF MY YOUTH, BY UNDERMINDING ME AND MY SPOUSE. L/L VISITED APT AND STATES THAT THE DOG HAS TO GO. WHICH WASN'T THE ISSUE FOR THE VISIT. NOW, THE FLOORS ARE NO LONGER THE ISSUE THE DOG IS. ADVISED THAT THE 15LB DOG MUST GO, BECAUSE I VIOLATED THE LEASE AGREEMENT. I CAME TO THE BUILDING BECAUSE IT WAS A DOG FRIENDLY BUILDING. ADVISED BY THE BUILDING MANAGER THAT IT WAS OKAY, THERE ARE ALOT OF DOGS IN THE BUILDING ALREADY. THE L/L SAID THAT EVERYONE IS GETTING A NOTICE REGARDING THE DOGS. I AM THE ONLY ONE TO RECEIVE the letter.(LAUGHING) THE L/L AND THE PROPERTY MANAGER KEPT CALLING ME REGARDING THE DOG, FLOORS AND SAFETY ISSUES NO LONGER AN ISSUE. HPD HAD BEEN NOTIFIED AND ARE PURSUING THE VIOLATIONS. NOW THE L/L HAS COME BACK TO THE ISSUES, AFTER NOTIFYING DEPT OF HEALTH REGARDING BLACK MILDEW AND BLACK FUNGUS UNDER THE KITCHEN SINK CABINET. FLOORS STILL WARPED, ENTERTAINMENT CENTER WOBBLES AS MY 30 LB SON WALKS BY. PROTRUDING NAILS ON FLOOR. CHILDREN ARE BASCIALLY CONFINED TO ONE ROOM DUE TO UNSAFE CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT THE APT.
NOW L/L HAS COME TO HIS SENSES RGARDING THE APT AFTER SEVERAL COMPLAINTS TO HIM: HAS DISPATCHED A FLOOR COMPANY WHO LIFTED A TILE AND NOTICED THAT NOTHING IS SUPPORTING THE FLOOR. THEY QUIT
ON THE SPOT. NEXT DAY PROPERTY MANAGER CAME OVER WITH FLOOR CO. OWNER AND SURVEYED THE FLOOR. OWNER OF THE FLOOR COMPANY STATED THAT THIS IS A VERY BIG JOB AND CAN TAKE A FEW DAYS. ASKED L/L IF THEY CAN PROVIDE US WITH TEMPORARY HOUSING.NOT!!!!! HE STATES THAT IT IS NOT THEIR PROBLEM, NOW WIFE IS ALLERGIC TO SAW DUST AND SMALL CHILDREN PRESENT IN THE APT. JOB IS CONSIDER A MAJOR REHABILITATION TO APT......... I SERVED THE PROPERTY MANAGER ON HIS WAY OUT... SUING FOR BREECH OF CONTRACT-HABITABILITY OF THE APARTMENT. PLEASE HELP ME ON MY DEFENSE, NO LEGAL REPRESENTATION CONTACT ME VIA EMAIL. THANKS
