: It has been two week and my landlord has yet to fix the hot water in our apartment building. We have had many excuses from the repairman did not come to they picked up the wrong part.
: Question?
: Can we deduct the portion of the rent that represents the services for hot water. And, if we can, what percentage of the rent money does the hot water represent?

Probably not. There is no such 'formula' here in NY, and there probably isn't in Phily either. Here is a direct link to part of a booklet written for tenants: you'll find the rest on TenantNet Home.
