i just moved into a newly remodeled apartment. I went to set up Internet and apparently during the remodel process they took the phone jack out. I'm going to have to have century link come install one... $99. Is it reasonable to ask for a reimbursement?
Sure it's reasonable and may even be required by statute (a WA attorney will let us know). This situation is a good way to develop landlord relationship. Ask her if she has preference for jack location, and offer to get work done and deduct cost from rent.
Proposing solutions to problems often gets us more than looking at the law or asking permission.
It may seem reasonable but that is a fast way to get yourself evicted. Don't EVER short the rent without carefully following RCW 59.18.150's exact rules. Does your contract state that internet is available? Does your contract require you to pay for internet? Have you written to your landlord and advised that you seem to be missing your phone jack? Please have this discussion with your manager/owner BEFORE you find yourself in hot water.
Using Avvo does not form an attorney client relationship.
