Q: How to get the people above to stop their leaks that are ruining my walls paint and plaster?

The old ladies that rent the place are clueless. The bathroom floor is not finished. Rough concrete only and not finished concrete but a porous powerdery looking stuff. Couldn't make water on the floor go to drain even if wanted too. The ladies do try to mop up the water but cant stop the leaking. Their landlord rented the place unfinished. Refuses to fix the floor and said will fix my roof and walls in the spring. I dont want blackmold in my place. How to get him to address this problem correctly?

Contact the management of the area you live in. They will sort it. If you are renting then the agency rep who co-signed the contract can help too.

To be honest, nothing is going to happen. Even if the landlord does finish the place as he said, you will have a half a dozen people looting your belongings when you are out. Not to mention the shit and dust everywhere for weeks/months.

 

Move. And expect to kiss your deposit goodbye.

I have a sort of similar problem, but it's from a downpipe, not from the upstairs neighbour.

 

My landlord has said she's refusing to pay the maintenance fees until it's fixed, which I totally support.  After all, what are maintenance fees for?

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
