Reader Mail: Delinquent Landlord
Hoboken411 reader Cherie is wondering what she should do about her non-bill-paying landlord!
Don’t want to dry up!
“We live in a very basic brownstone rental apartment in Hoboken. There are three other tenants in the building, and are all normal people who never cause trouble, or bother our landlord for minor issues.
Yesterday, a water shut-off notice was left on the front door from United Water – saying that if the bill wasn’t brought current, the water would be shut off the first week of July!
Is there some kind of law that prevents this from happening?“
