Dizzy Dame Posted April 21, 2006 Report Share Posted April 21, 2006 Hi all, My building STILL hasn't switched the AC on and over the past two weeks, my apartment has gotten up to 85 degrees during the day. Needless to say, the heat makes me extremely ill. I've had to go out and buy a $300 dollar window unit in order to stay conscious, but I'm still unable to get the apartment to a temperature where I can function and have been bedridden for the past week or so.I've contacted my building manager several times and explained to her that I have heat intolerance, and that I could injure myself fainting because of the heat but she still refuses to turn the AC on---citing that the building's policy is to turn it on in mid to late May!I contacted a lawyer today who told me to go to Maryland housing services and file a complaint, but I was wondering if any of you know if I have a leg to stand on (not that I CAN stand--har har har ). I feel like my rights as a disabled person are being violated. Any advice, tips, insight? Have any of you had to file a complaint/hire a lawyer because of poor treatment before?Thanks, Lauren Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
