The landlord pretends he doesn’t know the hot water is scalding until he sees me burn my hand today. It is an old repeated violation, when we have hot water, it’s boiling hot from faucets. The court inspector told him to fix it on November 20, we have told him too, but today he pretends he doesn’t know it’s scalding and sends a text and/or email message to all tenants saying it will be fixed and to use cold water. The plumber was here 12-7-18. It is now 12-14 and it’s still not fixed.
Below 12-12 text will be public record but may be copyright – it was sent as an email to all tenants. I do not agree to email communication so received a text.
All week the landlord had been doing demolition and work – without permit- by unlicensed workers – in apartment 1A. The dust, blocking of egress, loud sawing in occupied apartment effected all residents….
The landlord submitted Lead Certification for 1D and 1a in court with the HP action. Neither tenant was part of the action at the time. The Lead Certification is false. It is signed by a property manager who did not even work for the landlord/this building at the time. The lead certification for 1D is further false as it claims testing in 4 rooms, hall and bath but the apartment is only 2 rooms hallway and bath.
