Got any friends in law school?) Is this happening in other apartments in the complex too? If so, you might be able to join together and bring some kind of suit on the guy... or at least threaten to if he doesn't meet your demands....
I agree, a lawyer would be my normal route..........but, heres the issue. The lease isn't in my name, it's in my ex boyfriends name. We are close friends, he lives in Brooklyn and I have been living here for 3 years. He has already had a court case, hired a lawyer, years ago because the landlord was trying to get him out. Basically Eric (my ex) doesn't want anything to do with any legal issues again, and since he doesn't live here, these issues aren't as important to him.
I actually have a headache right now and I think its from the stinky, mold smell............................Thank god its nice enough outside to open the rooftop door!
