Tenants' Rights: Repairs

Even if your apartment needs repairs, you need to pay your rent on time every month. If you don’t, you risk being evicted.

The first thing you should do is ask your landlord to make the repairs. If that doesn’t work, keep paying your rent. You can try to get the repairs made by bringing a housing code enforcement lawsuit, also known as a Payment Into Court action.
