I rent basement space for living quarters together with my four children.
There are three other families which rent other areas of the basement, and
all of us share the same problem.
The landlord refuses to fix the water problem. Everytime it rains, the
basement gets as much as four inches of water down here. We are concerned
about getting shocked from the appliances or from our fans which we run to
keep the air circulating.
Could some kind soul give advice how we could seal the walls to keep the
water out? Is there any suggestion for something we can do outside? One of
the families suggested putting plastic on the block wall outside, which is
above ground. This is a very old home, so I can kind of see the landlords
refusal to fix this.
