Draw up a petition and have all the tenants who would like to sign. In it state that as long as this Superintedant and his wife are maintaining the building none of you will even consider buying into the building. Also becuase you all feel the super may be putting everybody in danger because of laziness you have all requested the Department of buildings come on done for a building inspection. This ought to sting enough to management off their arse.


: I live in a building that is really nice and the rent is not that high. You have the option to buy the apartments. A new management co. bought the shares of the old mgmt. I have a problem with the current superintedant. Him and his wife have been employed there for 3 yrs. They are unreliable, lazy, disrespectful and liars. They usually don't show up for work to be done. The work usually is not done properly and results in then having to hire outside contractors. They constantly cancel appointments at the last minute. They refuse to answer their door or telephone at certain times, even during emergencies.Despite constant complaints from different tenants the haven't been fired. Sometimes they are reprimanded. But usually they lie their way out of most discrepanices. What I want to know is what are the tenants rights regarding this. Why should decent rent-paying tenants have to tolerate incompentant and rude superintendants. What will it take for the management to wake up and replace them.
