What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New York City (manhattan)
The landlord has water pipe on top of my ceiling, and one of them exploded for like 3 times during last winter because the water pipe was not in use, but just hang on there. I then wrote her a letter requesting her to remove the water pipe since the water pipe is not in use and it will interfere my business when it explode again. So, I want to know, should I write her a letter in the future because she didn't do anything about that water pipe that is on top of my ceiling, and i'm afraid when the winter come, the water pipe might explode again, and again with the same trouble. Also, can I request her to check all the pipes by sending her a letter as a notice? Lastly, if she fails to prevent water pipe explode, would I be able to request for the cost of electricity repair since there are wiring on my ceiling.
