I am still hanging on by a thread here, but I think the thread is a little stronger then it was a month ago. Not much but a little is better then nothing.
Some of you are aware of one of my many problems and some are not. To those of you who are knowledgeable in the world of contracting or construction or building code standards, please help with some advice.
Our apartment is sinking slowly. ...Perhaps. We are currently in the middle of a lawsuit that has to do with neglect on the part of the management company of the apartment complex we reside at and have for 10 years.
About an hour ago, the resident manager came to our apartment to tell me that they were here to fix the large crack in the dinning room floor. It is a concrete floor and the crack is 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide and about 10 feet long. Probably much longer because it goes from wall to wall.
I blocked off the dinning room area so no one would walk around in it because I do not know why the floor is cracked so badly. There were a few repairs made on the outside of the building a few months ago that were very visible, a contractor came out after the city told them to repair it. The entire section was torn down and rebuilt.
The crack was not as large as the one in our dinning room. However, it was in the walkway of the front entrance to the building on the second floor and couldn't be missed.
Our crack is in the dinning room under the tile and was only found while we were putting in new floor tile.
The manager told us she would get to it as soon as she could. It was January 2003 the last time she said they were getting to it. Any time now.....
Since then a LOT has happened around here and now she is denying that, she even knew about it.
She brought the maintenance man (painter) with her to my door and told me he was here to repair the crack in the floor.
He had a small tub of Spackle in his hand.
He is now fixing it.
We are going to court on the 25th and the management is going to say they fixed it.
What would any of you do if in my position?
This is only one thing on a very long list of problems in this building. Another is "mold" inside the walls.
Side note, The manager is not aware that I have pictures. Just in case I might need them for something.
BTW, we are 4 floors up.
