Another avenue: find out if the building is subject to Rent Control.
If it is (and many are), you can apply for a reduction in rent due to "reduction in service."
This doesn't directly address your issue, but until repairs are made you will pay less rent.

Take all your paperwork and open a case. Once all the paper starts flying I would expect quick action.

Please keep us updated.

Sounds to me like somebody's getting paid off. This should have been resolved already. Perhaps they want to develop this property for something better.

You need to get in touch with the Bureau of Home Owner protection. They mostly cater to the home owner (Obviously) but in this case, get them on board.

You might want to check your info, as I was told that Althea Bernheim is no longer RCC Director.

We spoke with whoever is under Director Coleman (after being transferred from landlord/tenant relations). They made us wait 45 days- and then when we called after the 45 days were up claimed we missed an appointment that they never told us about (to stare at the hole in the floor some more?) because they had just called our building manager instead of the resident who complained. And then said we had to wait another month for an appointment because of their mistake. Tons of attitude and insistence that it was our fault for not being at an appointment they never told us about.

Try calling the city's office of Landlord/Tenant Relations as well.

In NJ, you have a warrant of habitability. Long story short, you can pay to have the damage repaired and subtract that cost from your rent. Look at the top of page 2.

They cut a hole in the first floor hallway to repair a pipe that had burst and have left plywood over it with no signs of ever planning to fix it despite the hole going directly into the basement. The building is managed by a local company but everyone seems to be just waiting on the response from our landlord. Other things get repaired and maintained properly but we get no sort of action on this one major issue.

What was the violation? They found your building dangerous?

What does one do if the city gives the landlord a notice of 45 days to make repairs and nothing is done? Have spoken with the appropriate department and they refused to give us the hours of their "supervisor"( Edward Coleman) that we can actually speak to them since nothing has been done. They had visited our building previously to inspect and agreed it was dangerous and needed to be fixed and gave our landlord notice that they had 45 days to make repairs. Who am I supposed to be paying off to get this taken care of??
