Hi, the gas to my building has been shut off by Con Edison for a week now. The management company has not given the reason for this to their tenants and give no estimate for length of time to repair. Their statement seemed to blame Con Edison for the gas shutdown. I contacted Con Edison and they informed me that there was a gas leak detected in the building and that the gas was subsequently shut off. Con Edison also informed me that it is the building's responsibility to fix this and it is at their discretion as to how quickly this is done. However, the management company admits nothing and it quite argumentative about it and has not offered anything to it's tenants (considered a luxury building) other than an electric stove top. I think that the tenants deserve rent abatement and honesty about the situation. An educated suggestion(s) for me would be most appreciated. Thanks.Join the Conversation Comments (2)
