Have been renting condo for 2 years. Had plumbing issues prior, to most recent one where there was a sewer backup that flooded the property damaging most of my personal property. Please advise.
You can file a lawsuit against your landlord. First, you should meet with an attorney to go over all the facts and determine whether that is the best route to take. Many of us will give you a free first consult.
You should contact him and file an insurance claim. Honestly, the best advise I can give you is this is the best opportunity you have to break free of the lease and move. I would recommend you sit down with a real estate attorney to discuss your options. It may make sense for the landlord to let you out of your lease at this point and explore your options about renting versus buying going forward. Most real estate attorneys also know agents that can help with this decision. Good luck.
