Burnt-out and move in?

Posted by Bob C. on January 19, 1999 at 09:32:38:

In December my friends apartment building had a fire in it on the second floor which gutted that floor and damaged some of the thrid floor. The forth floors and up where undamaged by the fire but very smokey. Most of the windows where broken from the heat of the fire and the doors broken in by the fire figthers.

The landlord has replaced the windows and the doors on the forth floor and up and the doors. Now he wants the tenants to move back in on these floors. (my friend is one of the unlucky) The second and thrid floors have no windows and are unliveable.

Is my friend with in her rights not to move back in untill the building is liveable or can the landlord collect rent on the semiliveable apartments. What are her legal rights?
