When we moved in we received space heaters but didn't know why. Turns out the top floor is not connected to the furnace and the landlord knew. We message him all last winter and he didn't respond but we keep extensive documentation ( Email, Phone call)
This year I was told to call the city inspector, he came out and capture the temperature below 68 (Legal limit) but said it was to close (to 68) and they wouldn't do anything because I'm a male and can handle it, they also set the re-inspection date out a month later and refuse to do an official report.
As of now, the landlord is set to come out this week and install a long-term solution but he is not going to install heat into the other room that we rent on the third floor because it's unoccupied.
I'm not sure what to do. I am a college student and would like to retain a lawyer who can handle this case.
You can call HomeLine for renters in Minnesota (website here: https://homelinemn.org/). It is a nonprofit that provides free legal help to renters.
