Units above me had plumbing issues causing water damage to my apartment 4 different times in the past 3 years . Plaster on ceilings/walls are cracked, blistered, peeling, ugly brown stains and mold, the carpet/padding was soaked. I reported water leak and damage. Maintenance fixed the leaks upstairs but not the damage in my apt. I had to put duct tape on the plaster ceiling in the bathroom because ceiling was collapsing. The blgd is infested with roaches, and the window a/c is not large enough for the sq feet to cool properly. I am disgusted with my living conditions and want to move someplace else. A friend is encouraging me to move, saying they won't sue because it will cost the landlord more money to hire an attorney and take me to court to get the $1,500 in rent I would owe.I didn't see this on my lease before signing #21 Condition of Premises. "Tenant hereby acknowledges that he/she has inspected the Premises and agrees to accept the same in their present "AS IS" condition. Execution of this Lease shall be deemed conclusive evidence that the Premises are in satisfactory condition and repair, as of the date hereof. " Yes when I moved in July 2010 it was in satisfactory condition, but the flooding started 4 months after I moved in. I understand that the landlord has a duty to mitigate his damages, but I also have a right to live in a clean, safe, well maintained healthy home/apartment. I only kept renewing my lease because I did not have any money saved for deposits to move anywhere else. Now I have the money saved and I want out.
