He went against fife inspector notes and so he was jrdered to let fourteen residents back jnto building. He claimed asbestos but xhusdd nk proof. However itx been one ye and 7 of us are still homeless and in our he has not started thd dork st all e cent ripping all rugs jff every floor and those floors were not even affected by fire. Anyway above my apt 3 yrs prior z tenant died suddenly of fajlure of bowel and lungs. prior she was 30 yrs old. The Landlord started to do reno actions on that apt bug suddenly stopped. Never touched that apt again. It was a two bedroom and this landlord was weekly trying to get us grandfathered tenants to accept 5000.00 6000.00 to move out . Nk e of ux took it but he was constantly bugging and the enjoyment of tenancy was hard. Now my apt had renovations yet he didn’t even fix those so why would he think believing thdt if I move my stuff outta my unit to the storage him giving me 2000.00 to live for 4 weeks and move backnin with incentive of gi jng me the remaining of 5000.00 but mh rent doubles how could believe this? Now question the apt above he could of renovated that apt in three years he stopped And it sat empty and jnfinished do you think possibly he spotted asbestos and kept silent because why would he take the loss of 1750.00 rent for 3years. The fire brought out the detection in my unit beliw this empty unit.more so . How can I find out if it did the above apt. Building built in 1963

    1. Hey Maribeth, based on the serious concerns you’ve raised about potential asbestos exposure in your building, especially after a fire and the landlord’s failure to proceed with promised renovations, it’s crucial to take immediate action. First, document all communications with your landlord, including any mentions of asbestos and renovation plans. This documentation will be essential if legal action becomes necessary. Given the potential health risks associated with asbestos, consider consulting with a tenant rights lawyer or a legal aid organization to understand your rights and explore options for holding your landlord accountable for providing safe living conditions.

      Moreover, you should report your concerns to your local health department or building inspection department, as they have the authority to investigate hazardous conditions, including the presence of asbestos. They can also enforce regulations that your landlord might be violating. If you’re worried about asbestos in your unit or anywhere in the building, hiring a licensed asbestos inspection company to perform tests could provide definitive answers. Although there might be costs involved, knowing for sure can help protect your health and strengthen your case against the landlord.
