Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Can you tell me what state this is in?
Are you saying that the ceiling is sagging down like it is ready to collapse?
Have you notified the landlord in writing and demanded that they come make repairs?
Ok, then your next step should be to call the local Code Enforcement or Housing inspector's office and request an inspection. They will come out and then cite the owner to make repairs. This is some kind of leak the is letting the drywall get wet and bow down, either from the roof vent or from another unit upstairs (if there is someone above you).
They will force the landlord to make repairs of face daily fines..
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time.
If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided as that is the only way I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
