i don't know what to

Posted by Jenn on November 09, 1998 at 15:18:24:

First of all i wonder if it is illegal for my landlord to be bringing in
our mail. I do not know why he feels compelled to bring in our mail but
he does. I have a seperate mail box but he still brings it in and puts it
on our steps- I feel this is an invasion of my privacy.
Secondly, there are repairs that he has said he would fix and has not.
I have been in the apartment for a month and a half. We have a broken
window in the attic and a dead phone line in my room. Does he have a time
obligation to get these things done.
Third, we are cold in our apartment. Heat is included but he controls it.
I think that we should be able to control it- i understand that because he
pays for it that he should have the right to control it but we are cold and
we have told him twice. The second time he gave us a thermameter. The temp
flucuates but has dropped to 64 in some rooms but the highest i have seen
it was 70 and that was once. I think that he should fix the window. We
should have known because when we moved in he gave us a space heater and
told us we can use that but i don't think so because the deal was heat was
included and we should not have to pay for the space heater.
I also was told by him that the driveway should not be blocked and that
"he does not want to ask, not even once to have someone move their car".
The problem is is that i park in the same driveway and i have come home
many times with his van blocking the driveway- leading me to park and walk
a block away. What can I do about this? What goes for him should go for us?
Oh i could go on about how he tells us who we can have in our house and monitors
how much laundry we do and inquires about our sexual preference but I won't.
These issues need to be handled for the meantime. thanks jenn
