Bronx, NY asked in Real Estate Law, Landlord - Tenant and Legal Malpractice for New York

Q: Can I sue my building management for poor back of building care.

May sound a bit mad but im not looking to cash out here. I just want our building management to be more competent in making sure tenants do not throw garbage out the their window. There is tampons, menstrual pads, shampoo bottles, dog feces and other unsanitary things that probably shouldn't be all over the back of the building. I've already informed the superintendent in which he said he'd give us a visit that eventually never happened. He is well aware.

A: You should contact your local municipality to request an inspection. If the municipality finds a violation the landlord will be forced to correct the issue.
