In December, the first month of occupancy, Susa found that the heat was sporadic. She did not inform the landlord because her neighbors had already put in a request to fix the heat in the building.

Then a month later she found the water pressure insufficient to take a shower. In the fourth month, there were all sorts of vermin running throughout the building.
By May 30, she had had enough problems and sent an email to the landlord saying she was moving out the next day since she found the apartment uninhabitable.
