    I'm just shaking my head at the victim mentally here. He's not paying rent and has the audacity to complain about living conditions.

    How can the landlord pay to fix things if they are not collecting rent?

    I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the last four years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year,I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulate all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (Herpes and Cancer) by this Man Dr ASIKA and she also gave the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to Dr ASIKA telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! hmm i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as the Dr assured me that i have cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can email Dr ASIKA on : [email protected] sir i am indeed grateful for the help i will forever recommend you to my friends!!! He can also cure some other diseases like Dystonia HPV HEPATITIS HERPES HIV LYME DISEASE. AND MANY MORE. contact him on his via Whatsapp https://wa.me/ +2347065795494.

    Well a mechanic and a construction worker surely between them they could figure out how to fix the fire escape window escapes so they can get out in case of a fire

    Probably a Kushner Building. Watch the video on Netflix on slumlord landlords. Nice piece on Kushner.

    To the man who is on a rent strike, we empathize with you and hope your life improves. 👉🐁 Please tho, don't use the incredibly cruel Glue Traps for mice: just use the old standbys, the Trip and Neck Break Traps. They are immediate and do not cause prolonged suffering.👈
