Reader Cleezy Clapback needs some advice:
We moved into a duplex on 20th and Treat (yikes!) in June, and the occupants upstairs are all close friends of mine. The landlord agreed to repair some presumably negligible problems with the house, and we were fine with the verbal agreement. 3 months later nothing had happened, and things started to fall apart. After contacting the Rent Board, our landlord was notified and, shortly after, contacted someone to fix the house. One thing led to the other, yada yada yada, they ripped up the entire floor of the living room and kitchen, replaced the shower, and knocked out an entire living room wall.
After living without a wall for a week, the Building Inspector visited me, stating that their has been NO permits filed with the City for the construction. The construction workers left. Now their is a gaping hole in our wall, no floor, and no electricity in the living room. What’s next? Are we going to be evicted? Relocated? Am I responsible for the cost of relocation? Dear God, help us.
God, readers, what’s the deal?
