    Doing so, I've found, also turns the tables on the landlord - instead of them taking you to court, you can take THEM to small claims court and sue them for damages sustained during the period of non-repair.  I've heard it's not that unusual in some tenant-friendly places for judges to award the rent escrow back to you by way of damages.  The landlord gets stiffed AND has to make the repairs.

    Turn the tables on the bastard.  Don't get mad - get even.
