Several apartments flooded including mine from a sewage line. It took my landlord over 8hrs to respond with a plumber and a so called carpet cleaner. We were told to keep 2 huge and very loud fans plug up for 72hrs after they cut up the carpet and removed the padding. We were not accommodated with anything but attitude as if it was our fault. Some of the tenants even ask if they can stay in a vacant apartment to avoid some of the inconvenience, but were denied. Can someone help with who in the city do we need to call to get some answers, because it doesn't seem like we are getting a shake.

Kansas City is up north ? I would be looking for another apartment as you may get a mildew problem. They should have replaced the carpets. I would at least gripe and try to get a bit of a rebate for the inconvenience.

In response to rickers...

I would assume North Kansas City or Kansas City North. Both are completely different than KC proper.

and to the OP:
Call the city. Or an attorney. Either way, I wouldn't want to be stuck in there afterwards. Even after they replace the carpets and stuff, that could have caused damage to the subfloor or if nothing else, a stench in the subfloor that will eventually come back after the new carpet smell wears off.

You need to have it disinfected before you live in it...If you don't you stand a good chance of getting sick. I would contact the county health dept to see if they can assist in getting your LL to do something.

I would get a lawyer or demand to be released from your lease.
