Is the co-op in breach of the Warrant of Habitability because of their refusal to help my friend? She is writing a letter to them documenting the problems and wants to know if she can say that they are violating the terms of this warrant. Thanks again for the advice.
: : My friend recently moved into a co-op apartment in Jackson Heights,
: Queens and her neighbors have been fighting very loudly and violently
: for the past week. She's had to call the police twice, but the neighbors
: did not open their door, and neither did my friend. She called the
: management company and they basically blew her off saying that she should
: just call the cops and if it got bad, she could break her lease.
: Noise control is the owner's responsibility and she can break the lease
: for that, but document the problem. Police? Forget them. For the most
: part they're lazy.
: the managment company added that she was "a young girl and in no position
: to be moving again." What the hell was that about?
: I would record that and threaten a law suit for sexual discrimination as
: they are withholding services based on gender.
: :My friend works for
: a very prestigious financial institution and is no waif. Anyhow, what
: can she do to make the management company do something about this
: As always, withholding rent is an option,, but put it all in writing
: (even though you shouldn't have to do that) and document the problem.
