Hello, here another roaches question.
The building where I live (west 20's) is infested with roaches.
We can ask the super to spray our apartments once a mouth , but I have just found out, the management ignore, or pretend to ignore, there's a 'roach problem' in the building so they have never treated
the entire building, nor the basement.
My question is: has the owner of the building the obligation to do that?
Thanks a lot.

Most landlords will have an exterminator come by once a month, but the reaity is, landlords are required to keep the apartment vermin free. If the landlord ingnores your requests, do as Lilly suggested, call HPD.
