Plumber Reccomendations

Hi neighbors! Our sink in our Kenwood condo has become separated from the counter top and now we have a bit of a leak under the sink as well. We are looking for a good plumber that services the area. I know I could call roto-rooter, but I always find them impersonal and very expensive. I think the leak is causing a severe buckling in our kitchen laminate floors as well, so flooring professional recommendations are also appreciated!!!

Terrible Landlord

How do you deal with a landlord who does not want to make repairs he promised? We have given him a list, pictures, and he has seen for himself. HE STILL WILL NOT MAKE THE REPAIRS for the apartment to be liveable. What should I do?I just moved into the apartment late June! We are tired of begging him.

  • Cynthia Live...Love....Laugh

    Call 311 and explain to thm what's going on. I did so 8yrs ago..they will send some one out to investigate..let you know about tenants rights..if they find anyth wrong they will get in touch with the landlord in give him or her a violation..and give thm a certain mount of time to fix the problems.PLEASE CALL 311!!!!

  • Update! WE MOVED OUT! He is by far the worst Landlord ever. He never made repairs and the apartment became run over with mice. I did everything thing you guys suggested and it just got worst. The electricity was old, mice were terrible. We would show him pictures and he just a trash landlord.

  • Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School reviewed

    As a former student, I can confidently say that my time at this school saved my life. The staff found an appropriate balance of supporting me and pushing me to better myself. After a while in a dorm, I was transitioned to TLC where I made some negative choices, but that didn't stop my team from believing in me and pushing me to work towards graduation. While working with my base class teacher while preparing for life after OSchool, I discovered what I wanted to do with my life and a year and almost 4 years later, I am a professional in my field of choice and am working to get further degrees in said field. Additionally, I got to volunteer in a third world country and work with kids and a healthcare setting a year after graduating the OSchool. This speaks to the growth OSchool students experience when they push themselves and work with, not against staff. I went in not knowing if I'd still be alive a week down the road and left with a plethora of opportunities and skills to better my life and the lives of those around me.
