What is your legal question about the situation you have described in your post?
Thank you for your follow up.
Unfortunately, generally, the landlord is not liable under the law for a leak from a pipe that might be damaged, and any claim for such damages would generally have to be pursued by the tenant against tenant's renter's insurance.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
Did the landlord repair the pipe each time it leaked?
Unfortunately, as long as, the landlord fixes the broken pipe each time the pipe leaked, the landlord would not be liable for damage to any of the tenant's personal possession and such claims would have to be filed with tenant's renter's insurance company.
I wish you the best of luck!
