What are my tenant rights?

Working Utilities, Heating, And Plumbing

As a tenant, you have the right to properly working utilities such as plumbing and heating (both hot and cold running water). If there are any problems or concerns with plumbing and/or heating, you should contact your landlord and repairs should be made as soon as possible. If your landlord refuses repairs or does not make repairs in a timely manner, you should contact a legal advisor and take legal actions to have the repairs done. Working utilities, heating, and plumbing are in your tenant™s rights and you should expect to have them.
