Truth in the Heating Season!
It is your landlord’s responsibility to make sure you have adequate heat and running water. It is your responsibility, as the tenant to notify your landlord immediately of any issues.
Per the New York State Tenants Rights Guide: Heat must be supplied from October 1 (September 15 in the City of Ithaca) through May 31 to tenants in multiple dwellings. If the outdoor temperature falls below 55°F between the hours of six a.m. and ten p.m., each apartment must be heated to a temperature of at least 68°F. If the outdoor temperature falls below 40°F between the hours of ten p.m. and six a.m., each apartment must be heated to a temperature of at least 55°F.
