This is the bulge in the ceiling I lived with for years. If finally caused the ceiling to crack and leak. Who knows what's growing up there as there's almost no doubt this is a festering puddle. I'd been waiting to lose all my dining room furniture in a heavy rain. Ceiling hasn't been fixed since the leak in March 2017 (7 months). 4 Light fixtures have leaked, and a licensed electrician was never brought in to ensure safety. The bathroom also needed repair. Broken upon move-in, "a full renovation" was claimed. Not done by licensed workers. The shower control was about to fall off, the shower door had no handles and the floor wasn't installed properly (foam filling). Just recently the shower leaked so badly the plumber was called in to repair, which he did, quickly. He had to cut open a hole to gain access since the shower controls were seized. Finally after two weeks and more contact to the landlord, a 'contractor' came to 'fix' the hole by simply screwing a heating return grate cover over the hole...leaving it unsightly. Black mold was observed in the wall. Landlord was made aware and had no response to the potentially dangerous issue. A plate was requested so the mold could be 'ignored,' but this grate was left against that request.
