So your renting a house and the plumbing backs up. Plumber says there are roots in the sewer lines and need to be replaced. Landlord says he is trying to get the city to pay for the work because its on their said but the plumber showed you and its actually in your yard. The plumbing works but you can not flush your toilet paper. So you have to throw your toilet paper in the trash if not the plumbing backs up. Landlord just says keep throwing toilet paper in trash and he is not going to pay to get the plumbing fix. This has been going on for two years.

So, the question is "to flush or not to flush"....... :)

Don't flush.... You don't want to be sued for rental damages... That would suck. :(

Cant afford to move. And no places in a decent part of town that I could afford if I could move.

Quoting JessT5280:

I'd move.

Move. That is called uninhabitable living conditions and you can break your lease without retribution.

That sucks sooo bad! :-/.... I'd move as soon as the lease is up. Why give him another dime?

It's against the law for him/her not to fix it. Start putting your rent in a 3rd party account until it gets fixed. Once the cash stops then they normally fix shit ASAP.
