: : If I sent a letter to the Building Manager for important repairs, by New York law how long do I have to give him to reply? If he does not reply how do I proceed. Especially if I have had problems with getting repairs in the past. Can I pay to have the necessary repairs and deduct from rent. Thanks for any advice.
There's no prescribed time limit; just notify him and make it reasonable.
Repair and Deduct is a tricky animal. There's no automatic right to it
in NYS law, but some judges allow it depending on circumstances. Just
make sure the LL has had plenty of notice.
