If my landlord refuses to find the cause of a leak in my ceiling, can I get out of my apartment?
I have a leak in my bedroom ceiling. That my landlord has known about for almost 2 years. It leaks when it rains hard. The landlord claims that it is from the people upstairs leaving there window open. We spoke to them and they said there floor is dry and they don't leave there window open. We called the code enforcement and they came and looked at. They called the landlord and he told them he was going to fix it. But the landlord told us there is nothing that all he can do but put plaster up there and when it rains it will leak. He put plaster up there and the rain just comes through that. I have a 2 year old that shares a room with us. The water has leaked on my bed everytime it has rained and the ceiling has leaked. I want to move out. Is there anything I can do? Also, the landlord will not call the code enforcement people back.
