Rent abatement may be an option, which means that the rent should be lowered since you toilet and shower were not working properly. However, sounds like this landlord has a lot of other issues going on, so before taking any action, contact a local landlord/tenant attorney who would be able to give you a free consultation and discuss what you options are and how to deal with the landlord.
