Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP

What state is this in, please?
No, there is no specific statute in the landlord/tenant code for how much one would get for meals, I am afraid. However, in the event of the landlord’s breach of warranty of habitability, the tenant is entitled to damages.
So the tenant can theoretically file in small claims court to ask for the difference between the cost of food for those days while the stove was not working, and, what they would have had to pay if it was working. If tenant files this, then the small claims court will make a decision on a case by case basis.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how I get credit for my time with you. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars or failing to submit the rating does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
I am sorry you feel this way. If you want to clarify this by asking/pressing on any nuanced, I would be happy to expand on the answer to your satisfaction.
Okay, all the best.
