Question: If your apartment floods due to the negligence of another apartment owner and you are required to move into a model unit temporarily, is rent still owed? I have read that rent for that current month is not but what if it takes longer than 30 days to fix the apartment?

Answer: There are no hard and fast rules about this. Ordinarily, it is up to the landlord and the tenant to negotiate a fair arrangement.
