Ask Curbed: No Heat Season is Here

New, 22 comments

If it's fall and winter, that means it's time for some questions about heat or, actually, the lack thereof. Here's one about the relationship between heat and paying rent:

I live in a railroad apartment in williamsburg, and upon waking sunday morning, our steam heat was not on. it's now tuesday morning, and it still has not been on. while i'm not home during the day, the last two nights of sleep have been freezing and miserable to say the least. the landlord is out of town and his wife has claimed it's being looked into. am i allowed to not pay rent for these days of no heat? for the month? he has a past history of serious neglect on problems in this building so i'm not surprised at all with the delayed response.Answers and observations about heat ahead in the Comments.
