I'll try not to make this too long. I am a tenant in a building in downtown Boston. About two weeks ago I found a leak in my ceiling in my room right above my bed. I called my landlord and informed him of the problem. He stated that he was already aware of a similar problem with a neighbor and he called a contractor. The contractor, in turn said that because of the snowy and rainy weather we are having he can't do too much with the roof. Therefore, I had to wait a couple of days for dry weather. Two nights ago it was snowing very heavily and the leak became even worse. I want to complain to my landlord but first I need to know if there is actually a viable solution to fixing the leak just by touching the ceiling. The weather is still a little wet and going to the roof might not be an option. Is there an alternate, temporary solution to stopping the leak indoors?
Im not sure anout all states but in most states this is your land lords problem.Other than dropping a pan under were it leaks i would leave it at that and contact my landlord becuse if you try to temp fix it and do not tell him and the problem becomes worse you might be held liable for it.
