leak under new floor of coop apt. coop sends in unlicenced super to do plumbing work under floor (in order to save money. yes i know, brilliant right?) - floor gets ripped open. leak repairs attempted. shoddy floor restoration done by super.
a week goes by - leak re-occures and floor is again taken up against protests of resident hwo is now ticked and who wants a letter from management guaranteeing quality floor job. super without plumbing license repairs leak again. does not touch floor which remains for three months in an open condition. finally tenant gets floor repaired for $10,000. now, normally a new floor is the responsibility of the apt owner, however,it seems to me that sending in the unlicenced plumber who did not screwed up the leak the first time around, constitutes negligence on the part of the coop and they must pay for the final floor replacement bill. like it or not. plus there is a breach of the warrent of habitability question. (sorry but we have a slow-learning board and I need feedback..) ANYONE? BP?
