Hi guys. First time poster. Long story.
The relationship between me and my tenant has been very on and off since i moved into my apartment 5 months ago. He always denies something needing repair, and when he does accept a repair it takes weeks just for him to send a contractor. Anyway: when i moved in I asked the place to be unfurnished, bar a table and chairs. The chairs themselves are very flimsy (cheap.)
This morning: I was working at my computer when suddenly the chair gave way and collapsed. I landed right on the edge of one of the chair legs and hit my lower back.
Fast forward: I called my landlord and explained what happened. This was his response: “It’s not my responsibility: you asked to keep them when you moved in: Anyway considering it’s my property you will have to pay for the repair.”
What are my rights here, and what can i do?
Considering my back is absolutely killing me because of this also.
Sorry to start on such a negative note.
