LANLORD BREAKING LAWS

By SHERESSE SPENCE

MY LANLORD HAS DONE A TON OF STUFF THAT I KNOW IS ILLEGAL. THE BUILDING WAS RECENTLY BOUGHT BY A NEW COMPANY AND THE ENTIRE OFFICE HAS NEW STAFF HOW DON’T SEEM TO KNOW LAWS OR TO HAVE EVER WORKED IN THE BUSINESS. I PAID RENT IN DECEMEBER AS ALWAYS AND ACCIDENTLY OVER PAID ONE OF THE OFFICE WORKERS SAID SHE WOULD CREDIT ME THE OVER PAYMENT TO THE NEXT MONTH. IN THE MIDDLE OF FEBRUARY SHE CAME IN MY APARTMENT UNLOCKED THE DOOR AND WALKED IN WITHOUT ANY NOTICE SAYING I OWED $15 DOLLARS OF WHICH SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO CREDIT ME WHEN I MADE THIS CLEAR SHE THEN SAID OH SORRY. I KNOW THAT WAS ILLEGAL AND I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY SHE KNOCKED AND NOONE ANSWERED (SINCE I WAS IN THE SHOWER) SHE JUST CAME IN ANYWAY.  I EXPLAINED TO HER ENTERING MY APARTMENT WITHOUT NOTICE IS ILLEGAL. I HAVE LIVED HERE SINCE NOVEMBER. THERE HAVE BEEN TWO INSTANCES WHERE THEY WERE WORKING ON WATER AND PUT NOTICES UP ALL OVER THE BUILDING. THERE HAVE BEEN 4 INSTANCES WHERE THEY HAVE SHUT THE WATER OFF IN ALL THE APARTMENTS AND NEVER TOLD ANYONE AND WHEN I CALL THE OFFICE TO COMPLAIN THEY SAY OH WELL IT WILL BE BACK ON IN 30 MINUTES. I KNOW THIS ILLEGAL FOR THEM TO DO THIS WITHOUT 24 HOURS NOTICE. 

SHOULD A FILE A COMPLAINT IS THERE A WAY TO GET THEM TO INVESTIGATE THE BUILDING HERE?
