Alex39 Posted February 6, 2018 Share Posted February 6, 2018 I wasn't sure what topic to put this in. I am extremely stressed over my apartment. I rent a condo from my landlord in a building. I am on the 6th floor with 9 floor total. A few months back there was a bad storm and water started coming in. It was like a hurricane so I just chalked it up to that. I called my landlord right away to tell them. They didn't seem to care, called the condo association/owner, and I never heard anything again. Now every time it rains, or ice melts water is coming in. At first it was in one corner, and now it is spreading. I have buckets and towels all around 24/7, not knowing when the water will come. I then started noticing water spots forming on the ceiling in all different parts of the condo. I called my landlord and told them all about these issues. They sent the owner of the condos and he came to look. He starts telling me there is a problem with the roof, and they cannot get it fixed until the spring when its warmer. He claims the roofers themselves won't go up there because it is too icy and dangerous. My landlords come to assess themselves and cannot believe the damage. Parts of my ceiling are orange and red from dirty water. I have molding that is ruined. Some of the water is near electrical outlets making me concerned, but no one else seems worried except me. My landlords fight with the condo people since its a structural issue, and the condo people keep saying just to wait until spring. So I have to wait months with buckets and towels out all the time? And now more and more spots keep appearing and I am worried. I am worried one day I will come home to my stuff ruined. Some of my stuff is priceless heirlooms and vintage hand me downs. I don't know what to do. Of course my landlords are collecting the rent per usual. They are trying. They said they will try to get someone to come in to seal off cracks, but they cannot seal off the middle of the ceiling. Its not their fault, its the people that own the building, whom don't want to do anything. Everyday I see new water spots and damage spreading. I am upset. I don't know what else to do.I have towels draped over things, and am running out of them to shower with. Its supposed to rain in a few days and I am worried. Northern Cali rain can be brutal. Help!
