My friend live in an apparent and she had have problems from the day she moves in frost they say they need to put new cupboard in when she move in which takes like almost a month then dish washer was broken , washing machine broke, water leaking from upstairs 2 different places, fridge not cooling she keep going to the office for them to fix and they stated to get mad at her because they take forever to fixed whatever the problem is she was away from Friday and went home this morning to find everything in her refrigerator spoiled it's not working she called the office not answer they don't even have an emergency number if you have a problem. Now she has to take the day off from work tomorrow to go to the office, my question is shouldn't they pay for everything in her refrigerator? The rent is not cheap for the one bedroom it's 940 per month

A proper landlord, or property manager, would fix those problems quickly and reimburse for damages but this is where the fine print in a lease comes into play. She may have better luck contacting the Housing Authority. As for reimbursement, if she knew the fridge wasn't working but still stored food in it and it went bad then she may be shit out of luck. She should review the terms of her lease and contact the Housing Authority.

She needs to mail a certified letter outlining all the issues and make them sign for it. Take photos too.

Then go to court and file papers stating they are not doing their job. She can ask to not pay rent until the issues are fixed, it's up to the judge. But set aside rent money until it's said and done.
