If you've alerted the LL through a polite short letter sent certified about this issue, then make a copy of your copy of the letter and call DHCR right away. Having access to your mailbox and having access to your mail may fall under Essential Services and DHCR may have you fill out a Lack of Essential Services form regarding it.

Are there any other issues the LL has deaf ears about?

: I would give the mailman a key if I could but the key says "Do No Duplicate"--I have yet to find a locksmith that is willing to duplicate a key that says this--I thought it was illegal for them to do, and several locksmiths have also told me that it would be illegal for them to make a copy without the landlord's written approval...

: I would say the fact that only my landlord can legally make a copy of the key and that he is unwilling to, and is thus illegally interfering with the delivery of my and other tenants mail is something to do battle over.

: : BTW-a Medico key is not $18- maybe $5. So be a sport and just solve the problem yourself.
: : There are some things you should do battle over-
: : providing the mailman with a front door key so he can deliver your mail is not one of them.
