my apartment flooded due to a pipe bursting in our kitchen. WHat is the landlord required to do by law in california, los angeles county
2 Answers from Attorneys
Repair the pipe. Other than that, it depends on what exactly happened as a result of the flooding and who was responsible for the pipe bursting.
Your landlord is required to repair the pipe and any damage caused as a consequence of the flooding. It is also possible that your apartment had become uninhabitable due to the loss of water service and the conditions caused by the flooding.
You may have additional rights if you live in the city of Los Angeles under the city's rent stabilization ordinance. If you do live in the city of Los Angeles, you should contact Los Angeles Housing Department and explain the situation. They will advise you further.
