I went to bed at 4:30am when I was done , I woke up at noon walk thru my hall way to make the coffee, and the entire hallway out to the living room is standing water, I didn't realize it until I heard sqwish sqwish and water flyin in front of me. Now my guitar amp, computer desk, file cabnit, and new Dell is soaked on the bottom. These apartments aren't that old, WTF does this have to happen! that's my for today.

I have no clue...We had alot of rain yesterday and last night. I have a bottom appartment. I really don't see any signs of the water comming from the ceiling, but I do see some bubbles on the wall, but the drywall isn't soaked or bubbled out this is really got me . My first thought was the persons bath tub above me, but I just don't see anything that wet for it to soak the entire carpet like this.

That stinks man. You call the apartment complex people? If it's the guy above you, I hope that he has insurance. That's why I got a bottom floor apartment, so when something happens above me and it floods/fires my stuff he's gotta pay for it! But if you have had a lot of rain, it may have come through the outside walls? Is that a possible theory? I don't know how your apartment is layed out.

I called the emergency line, however they must have something routed wrong with their phone lines, I can't get ahold of any maitnence men today, so I atleast left a nasty message about what I think about their emergency contact line.
This atleast gave me a chance to talk to the hot chick next door! She's a little older than me hmm I'd say 5 or 6 years older, she's still do-able tho! so this is a ++++ she said this happend to her last year and they said they fixed it, well obviusly not, her carpet is soaked like mine, she came in for a little while to see where mine was soaked. I think hers is a little worse than mine.
MP i will copy the link into MP corner. edit>>DONE!!

Damn That sucks!
Renters insurance would help if you had it. Other wise you may have to sue the owners for damages.

Well I don't think any of my personal stuff got damaged, heres the letter without the pics and addy's I am submitting to them tomorrow.
__________________________________________________ _______
Dear Management,

I am writing this letter to inform you of an “emergency situation” that occurred on this Sunday July 17, 2005 between 4:30 am and 11:00 am. Also I am writing on my behalf in apartment T-2 and my neighbor’s behalf in apartment T-1.

I woke up this morning and on my way to the kitchen to make coffee I walked thru a very large area of saturated wet carpet from the closet in the hallway all the way out to the middle of my computer desk in the living room. I do not exactly know where all this water came from, there are a few water spots on the wall and ceiling, but does not look like this amount of water could possibly come from these few wet water spots.

The bottom of my tool chest in the utility closet, file cabinet, computer desk, new dell computer, multi outlet surge protector and the bottom of my guitar amp are soaked with water. Luckily the water did not rise far enough to get into the electrical components that I know of at this time. I have very high wattage amplifiers and other components that were plugged in at the time of this occurrence.

I immediately talked to my neighbor this morning in apartment T-1 and asked her if her carpet was soaked with water, and she said, “Yes”. She also mentioned this happened to her last year in about the same time frame, and the maintenance men said the problem was fixed. Well obviously not, other wise this would not have happened again. We both agreed that this is unacceptable and the carpet will become moldy, and the base board underneath the carpet will become dry rotted and moldy. This needs some attention immediately

I attempted to call the emergency number provided in the lease to contact either management or maintenance to take care of this problem. The number I dialed was no longer a working number; however the recorded operator did tell me the number had been changed and provided the new number to call. All I got out of 4 attempts was a recording from an answering machine. I also tried the extension number for emergency maintenance and the operator on the recording said this is not a valid extension. My neighbor came over about 45 minutes later and asked me if I had any luck contacting management or maintenance. I told her no, she said she didn’t have any luck either.

I would like this problem resolved immediately, there is damage to the carpet, base boards, wall, ceiling, and paint. I have included pictures of the visible damage above the carpet. Please work with me on getting this resolved ASAP.

Sincerely,



Chris Bereznak
