Question Details:I have to put towels in my window when it rains and it does not help very much, not to mention how tacky it looks. I have complained to the office about it and all they tell me that management has put bids in for new windows but does it take a year and a half. The water is ruining the walls and it is very annoying having to put towels there that dont do much of anything and then I have to wash towels where I have to pay to wash and try.
Initially, take 15 to 20 photograghs of your damages. If you have to file a civil complaint in your local District Court, you will need tham as evidence. Assuming you are a renter and not an owner, you can place your monthly rent in an escrow account, separate from your other monies. Next, write a certified letter to Management, telling them your are placing you monthly rent money in an escrow account until the windows are fixed or replaced. When writing the letter, you must identify the esrow account, including the Bank's name and address and the account number on the escrow account.
