My SO and I live in Chicago. We moved into an apartment in July that had a known leak in the master bedroom. The landlord said that it would be repaired and taken care of. He has re-roofed twice and tuck-pointed the area but last week there was a serious leak from the snow melting on a flat roof and the drain pipe being clogged with ice and debris. While none of our personal items were affected (except a crummy rug) but there is water damage all over the ceiling and all over the wall and window area and on the hardwood floor (which supports a giant radiator).
The landlord said he found a solution but talking to other tenants and knowing his history he isn’t going to do anything about the drywall or the flooring! Not to mention my concern with potential mold. He seems to think he can just stop the leak and leave everything be. I am really not ok with that idea. I want to get a mold test done (since this has been an on going problem for longer than he lead us to believe) but they are $300+!
I am currently pregnant and am expecting in May. I am really uncomfortable with the situation we are in and frankly pissed.
Thank you very much for any help or advice!
