Thanks so much for your patience. This appears to be a classic breach of contract if the ceiling came down each time they tried to fix the air conditioner. A breach of contract just simply means that one party was obligated to perform and they have either have not performed or have said that they will not perform. Typically, the aggrieved party is entitled to be returned to the same position they were in before the breach. I also know of something that can help you with this situation. If you click here, you can request an attorney-prepared breach of contract letter for a flat fee (usually around $250). Turnaround time is less than 48 hours. Take a look at the link and fill out the contact form if you’re interested.

You may also have a cause of action for negligence as well. If they had fixed it right the first time, then your place would not have to be painted each time.

What other questions did you have for me today?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
