Is a laundry room a common area for which a landlord is responsible for maintenace and repair?
Our laundry room has been in horrible condition with a washer having stagnant water and wiring exposed. The floor is muddy and moldy because of a flooding washing machine.
Whether or not the laundry room that you are writing about is a common area which your landlord is responsible for maintaining and repairing is determined under the written lease that I presume that you signed. If you have a written lease, you need to carefully read it in that its terms and conditions control the obligations owed to you by the landlord and vice versa in the absence of conflicting state law.
Read the lease as to the landlord's obligations for maintaining and repairing items at the complex where you reside. If the laundry room that you are talking about is for all tenants to use, then most likely the landlord is responsible for its repair and maintenance. If the laundry room that you are writing about is in the unit you are living in and not for the use of other tenants, you need to read your lease as to whose responsibility it is for its maintenance.
