Is it legal for my apartment complex to shut off water for 3 1/2 days straight?
Depends where you live. Maybe they should offer to set you up in temporary accommodation (they pay). I would certainly enquire with a lawyer

Amarie Good to hear you have it cleared up. However in the near future. If an owner needs to do major plumbing repairs that would require to have no water for 3 1/2 day they would be required to put you up in a hotel.

Well if there is a water main break it will be in your best interest not to use the water. There may be some work being done and they may be able to do so if it is a hazard to use. Or if it gets in the way of fixing a problem. But not if they are just being nasty. Notice or no notice. They cannot have the utilities shut off on you unless the about has happened. I agree that you should receive compensation but that isn't the way it works. If its an inconvenience to you then you are expected to deal with it. If it is an inconvenience to them then you are expected to pay for it. That's pretty much how it works. Good luck.

Damn. That's harsh. But if the water doesn't work it doesn't work. I suggest you bath in the pool.

Yes that is legal if they are doing it to fix something. Would you rather they were like some landlords and refused to fix anything?
