On Monday the landlord shut down my water from outside. I filed a complain against him with the code enforcement and I have pictures of him doing this. I read about tenant laws and it says a landlord cannot kicked you out of the property in order not to fix the damages, in this case hot water. I want to leave but not having where to go doesn't help me. In the papers I read it says I can sue him for shutting the water. I have it back now bc I called a plumber.
What do you think? I'm not sure what to do. It's not karma I'm afraid, I just don't like being mean and I feel mean if I pursue it. But I think I have a right to do so.
I'm outside the courthouse with papers ready in hand to go file. I'm nervous and scared. I'm not looking for compensation but he isn't being too kind either with us not having hot water since Dec and now him shutting down the water altogether.
