We never saw an itemized plumbing bill. It was just $270-plumbing on the rental bill. It wasn't actual plumbers who fixed it, just the live in maintence people that live in the complex. Just thought i'd mention that. I'm still hopingthis was a mistake!

: Hi,
: I live in the suburbs of Albany, NY in a complex that is about 30-35 years old w/about 400 apartments, not rent stabalizied or anything. It's a one bedroom apartment and it's on a man made lake.
: My question is:
: We were staying at a relatives house 2 weeks ago. My fiancee came over to our apartment on 2/16 (Saturday night) to pick up some clothing items. He noticed there was human feces all over the bathroom floor, all filled up in the toilet and overflowing out of the toilet. We called the maintenence guys they came to fix it. They didn't come back in for 2 more days to even clean the mess.

: Fast forward to today: I opened my rent bill, there is a $270 plumbing repair bill!!!!!!!!!! What the #$%^???? Do I have to pay this? It's possible that this is a mistake, but i'd like to know what my rights are before I even bring it to managements attention.We'd had problems w/the toilet making gurgling sounds (like air bubbles coming up) in the past and the bathtub not draining.

: We have a one year lease that is up in August...

: Thanks in advance!!
