This. And you'll be doing your fellow tenants a favor, even it seems like you might not be. They're now living in unhealthy circumstances with mold, leaky plumbing, possibly sewage and who knows what else?

Plus, from a business perspective, your landlord is trying to hold you to a contract for which he is clearly not fulfilling his side of the bargain while holding you fully to yours. He's a sleaze to whom you owe absolutely no loyalty.

Report the conditions immediately.
