REPAIRS - Most all states have Landlord Tenant Laws, but I do not know what state you are in. I am only licensed in Washington State. I would like to see you send a letter to your landlord stating what your complaints are, BUT PLEASE ASK SOMEONE TO PROOF READ IT and correct your spelling so that you will get more respect.

Then, make sure your landlord gets the letter and you can prove it. Such as with Certified USPS mail or with a Process server, even a friend who is willing to testify for you if needed. This puts your landlord on notice that they are in violation of state laws. (personally I would move out)

You need to find out in your state what your rights are. You should not have to live like that.
