No repairs two years

Lived there reported problems for two years always saying they on their way never showed up to fix nothing.was told they the hired workers didn't want to work in Hamtramck could make more money in other cities. Landlord live out of town company running his business had to email to talk to him and ask questions it took days and weeks to get answers. But the tenant downstairs hasn't paid rent in a year.

Landlord Liability

Among the many duties of a landlord is to repair rental property and keep it in habitable condition, this means that if the apartment has any problems that interferes with your living, they are liable and are responsible in fixing it. In some cases, you can fix the repairs yourself and deduct from the rent. However, most laws require the that the repairs be in a way that make the place unlivable and not just basic repairs that the tenant can fix themselves.

In any case, you may want to talk to a landlord and tenant attorney who can assist you with your issue and give you feedback on what steps you can take
