How Do I Handle My Landlord?? by Mama4dworld: 5:09am On Jun 28
Hello everyone... please advice me.

My landlord is ignoring me.

My house is leaking.... very very badly. I have complained to him on several occasions and he has done absolutely nothing about it.
I have been experiencing this issue since the rain started this year.

And this man doesn't give a damn about it.

When it rains everywhere will be soaked.

NB: I moved in during the dry season last year. This is something I wouldn't have known.

What can I do...I really want him to pay for this...it is sincerely not fair...the worst part of everything is...he doesn't care.

What can I do??

Climb ontop the roof when he isnt around and create a hole on the zinc on his own side of the house.

Please call a carpenter to access the leakage. If it's something you can afford just do the patch and move on. Our people say it is where you live that you take care of. I'm all for treating a house you are renting like the house you built yourself. May God keep providing for you.

Toh, start looking for another house then. Biko park out. Just count it as loss. Because once you repair the leaking roof, if you tell them landlord you want to remove it from your rent he will ask you who sent you to repair the house, he will even eject you after all you Don repair house for am. Weigh the two options and choose the lesser loss.

Baba Your sense too much, any day I here say you get headache, Nah too much sense dey do you grin

Aswear op that's what I would do if I am in your position, it's bad, what happens when it rains and you are not at home? Then the water will leak from the roof and wet your bed.

Useless, wicked and greedy people, evenif the landlord cant afford it at the moment he/she shd come to a reasonable point with the tenant.

If it's just roof leakage, then your assessment is suspect. The highest u can use is a sheet of roofing sheet, that's if the section of roof is pulled out, the workmanship. How can that equate to a full year rent?

@ op, plenty situations could be the reasons your landlord doesn't want to fix it. He's either indebted, having challenges with finance, having family problems etc. If you ask me, I'd say fix it if you can and place the bill on him by sampling him receipts. Plenty landlord will also tell you that the expenses you made on fixing their own house, is none of their business.. If you can't handle it, pack out. Life is not fair. sad cool
