He clearly believes you broke it.  As such, your problem is he can simply slap the cost onto your next rent bill and then you'd either have to pay it or risk him starting a non-payment or holdover proceeding for breach of the lease.
Was exactly my concern.

Eta. The guy just finished playing with it. Turns out the pump wasn't burnt out after all. Just clogged or whatever.   BH.


You still need to pay the lawyer fees.  :)

Lakewood is probably different. But in NYC that would never fly.

LL would never win such a holdover. Only risk is if apt in unregulated and you are afraid LL wont renew for this (unlikely)

I'm not talking about winning. I'm talking about the headache it entails.

Exactly why the LL wont bother starting! Plus LL wont get rent until they go to court. Which at that time the tt can become a real d*ck back and start asking for an abatement, general repairs, harassment, etc. Especially if TT seeks legal counsel

I would love for my LL to try that on me!! A friend of mine just ran into a bind with his LL. After a little coaching, he walked away with a 5k rent credit!

Sounds right. Do tenants have 311 style any protection in NJ besides going to court?

No, but my standard message to family and friends is you probably don't really need a nonprofit to do what you are doing.

Do you have donors who will need a deduction?
Will your organization have income?

Often an accountant can help you set up a non profit with the IRS.

(Accountants are not bloodsuckers)

And help with issues of distribution of funds?
