I am sorry to hear this.

Why is it not fit for habitation? What have you asked him to do about it? Did you ask in writing? Did he agree to make the repairs? Has he made them?

What does the lease say that you are renting?

Has he played the recording for you to hear?

Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.

Thanks!
