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:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
