  1. i have been a advocate for MTO for a long time Now i’m asking for some assistant concerning my apartment its been since may 2019 the landlord removed a light bulb for my son room due to a leaking roof
    they patch it up with wire tape ,, and it now Nov 2019 .. in what way should i address this matter

    1. I need more information to be able to assist you. First is this a subsidized unit? If it is, you should contact our tenants rights hotline as your remedies become more complicated.

      Another question, has the leaking roof been resolved or is the leak still which will add complications. Roofs are harder for a tenant to take action on. Or is it just the light needs to be repaired. You can respond to this email or call out tenants rights hotline at 773-292-4988.
