Water damage from neighbor's hot water heater!
Last week I came home to find water all over my bathroom and hallway. I called the complex and they sent someone out to "fix" the problem. Yesterday I noticed that my closet ceiling was dripping. So, I called again and after many investigations they concluded that it was the water heater upstairs that had been causing the problem the entire time.
They are cleaning the carpet today, but most of the clothing in that closet was ruined. I do not have renter's insurance. Is the apartment responsible for replacing any of the damaged goods? If so, what is a reasonable amount to ask (it is hard to gauge the value of clothing!). I am also very worried that this problem may lead to mold/mildew. How do they investigate that? If they do find it, should I request that they move me or is it easy treated?
Any help is most appreciated!
