: There was a gas leak in our apartment building and the whole building is dealing with having no oven use for 30-45 days. also, plumbers and gas men are punching holes in the kitchen walls, the hot water is turned off frequently and the stench of cigarette smoke from the unit downstairs has wafted through the hole to overtak the whole apartment.

: The management company says there will be a percentage rent reduction which I haven't been told what it is yet, and I wanted to find out what my rights are regarding rent payment.

: Thanks - elisha

I forgot to mention: what your landlord pays tenants for lack of stoves should come out of someone's insurance: remind him of that if he tries to shortchange you. All/many tenants should get together: hire a lawyer to speak for you; s/he will get a much larger settlement (and the settlemant can cover the fee). Read My response to Richard and Virginia's response also. Let us know how it works out.
