Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level 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 and ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.


Do you actually have adequate heat in the house currently?


Has the landlord reimbursed you for any heaters you purchased?
