Customer Question

7 Days ago our patio covering collapsed and injured our cat. Our landlord has not removed the rubble - waiting for insurance adjusters. The adjuster and an engineer has stated the conditions hazardous. But no action has taken place. What are our rights for this continuous inaction in case I must escalate the matter.

Hello, I am Loren a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

You should contact the local municipal or county building department. They will send out an inspector who will examine the building and debris for code compliance and cite the owner if he is in violation..
