I moved to a newly renovated apt . My agent / broker notified me a day before move - in day that there will be no cooking gas for a few more days . Over the next 2 months , i learned that few inspections were needed and there was no gas meter . If i knew the facts , i would have waited with moving in . I asked landlord for rent reduction to reimburse me for 2 month's worth of additional costs incurred by eating out . They are refusing to do so claiming that the broker was aware of the situation and should have informed me before i signed a lease . The broker does not want to have anything to do with it . What should be my next step ? I don't want to lose the apt but i also believe that i should be compensated .I did withheld rent for 1 month and now seeking an offset against the rent. Already paid the following month rent in full. Should I send a check for the difference? Can they still sue me for non-payment? Should I consult tenant attorney?
