Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
You can threaten to file a complaint in court. This may get landlord to reconsider - since would cost him more to hire a lawyer, exposure to investigation. If other tenants affected, having them join you would help. Another option is to seek to cancel lease on this basis which landlord would also want to avoid. You can have a lawyer contact the landlord for added leverage.
