My apartment flooded through the ceiling 3 separate times between July 2014-Feb 2015 due to bad plumbing in the 3rd floor washroom 2 floors above me. The Landlord knew the plumbing was bad - washwater routinely backed up into my bath and kitchen sink for months prior & they sent plumbers to snake my drains twice, but they didn't put an overflow drain in the washroom or fix its plumbing despite the backups, 3 floods, the concrete washroom floor splitting in half, etc. until after I moved out in March of 2015.
Repairs were done improperly on several occasions so stachybotrys mold grew & repairs took ~6wks the 3rd time, during which I was required to pay hotel and rent.
Can I get back the rent I paid, $ for my damaged items, mold testing etc. this far out? If so, would I just get Feb/March rent back (the months I spent in a hotel)?
Typically, the statute of limitations for negligence and breach of oral contracts is 2 years and the statute of limitations for breach of a written contract is 4 years.
Assuming that you can prove a breach of a written contract by the landlord, then you could recover for damage to your personal property and possibly the cost of alternative lodging or the rent for the period you had to be out (but not both).
Finally, you may wish to make a claim on your renter's insurance
