Landlord not making repairs--upstate NY

Posted by Melissa on February 27, 2001 at 08:45:21:


I have a deadbeat landlord who is not making repairs. For example, I have a door that does not lock! I have made two written requests for repair and have not received a response. I have given this bum 60 days to respond and have continued to pay my rent. I have contacted the local building commissioner for inspection.

What next? Set up an escrow acct for rent until repairs are made or repair and deduct?

Any advice appreciated,
