: I am renting a coop apartment in NYC from an individual coop owner. In
: April the ceiling of my bathroom fell off, the coop patched up the hole in
: the ceiling but never finish the work till this date (4 months late). I
: complained repeatedly. The landlord told me that by law I am considered as a
: sub-tenant of the coop, the landlord-tenant law will not apply in my case,
: and that the coop has the absolute authority to decide when to finish the
: work, and that I have no recourse to request a rent reduction since an
: un-finished bathroom does not reduce its function but only effect the room
: visually, thus no reduce of service can be claimed. Does anyone had similar
: experience dealing with coop landlord? Any comments? Thanks in advance.

>>> there is a litttle thing here called " warranty of habitability" you can sue him for a diminishment in the apt of the ugly bathroom and the time to fix it
hold rent and go to court and tell the judge also ask for an inspection of your bathroom by an inspector<<<<<
