    1. Been waiting since 2-10 for a back door that shuts properly and locks

    Now there is a hole in the floor by the bathroom door and twist ankle every time we go to the bathroom.
    My husband and I have paid rent up till now 650 per month plus replaced the dishwasher costing 450 not deducted,
    kitchen faucet not deducted either niether was the bathroom floor that we replaced due to a hole in the floor.
    Now he has threatened to kick us out if not paid up. plus he expects us to fix these things we can we do if anything

    Hello friends.
    You could report this to the Building Department, and this could result in the landlord's being taken to housing court if an investigation proves your statements out. What is it you want -- to move out, or to force the landlord to fix this problem. It may be easier to lever your situation with the landlord into an early move-out, but you are certainly in a position it appears, to make the landlord's life difficult otherwise.
    Nice to meet you.
    Thanks.

    I wish to inform you that you may reply to your landlord and demand the amount of security deposit.
    You may also dispute the charges and damages stating that roach infestation was a cause of much damage
    and such roach infestation had already been reported by you.
