READ your lease, carefully Put it in writing to your LL, politely They have left you without running water for more than 72 hours, you have been patient Keep your receipts for water, etc. Request that LL put you up in motel as they have breached the warranty of habitability, it is unsafe and unsanitary

With the current 'bad' weather.....I'm sure ALL plumbers are busier than they've ever been....just give them time.

Hello Sharon, Are the tenants still living in your rental? If so, you need to file an unlawful detainer to evict your non paying tenants and get a judgement for what they owe you. Once you get a judgement, there are many things you can do to collect the past rent. You can turn it over to a collection agency and receive a small portion of the value of the judgement. Or you can have them subpeoned and brought before a judge to attach their wages or any bank accounts. Good luck.

If you have burst pipes in fifteen assorted buildings, this is going to be a MAJOR repair job. Don't expect to get water quickly. The complex is doing what it can to remedy the situation. As others have said, don't bother attempting to get a plumber on your own. No plumber in his right mind will commence work on such a situation unless authorized by management. Understand that neither the manager nor the plumber can create a miracle here. Water will need to be turned off, burst pipes located (possibly inside the walls) and repairs made. You could be facing a week without water. Only time will tell.

As long as the repairs take. Landlord complied with the law by calling the plumber. Landlord is NOT obligated to do anything else. Calling a plumber yourself is useless. No plumber will answer your call since you are NOT the owner
