[profile] sophistbastard and my apartment flooded. We are currently staying in a hotel. We might be moving to our managment's "guest house" later today. If not, we'll be here until Tuesday.

Now a call for advice...

This is NOT the first time this has happened. Twice before, two weeks ago, we had the same issue. Maintenance brought in wet-dry vacs and fans and replaced padding. They determined it was caused by some conflict between drainage spouts and landscaping. They said they were going to call the landscaping company and have them come fix it. Fast forward two weeks... our apartment flooded VERY BADLY. Like my living room, from the front door to the kitchen, and my whole master bedroom. For those of you who haven't seen my bedroom (really, there are people who haven't?!), it's a mess. Understatement. We don't have adequate storage for our clothes, and we're general slobs about the bedroom area anyway. This means I have a TON of soaked stuff, and a lot of laundry to do. I've also missed two days of work now.

The solution management has come up with, is to relocate us to a hotel or the guest suite until Tuesday. They plan on ripping out all of our carpet and replacing it with new stuff, and the landscapers think they have a solution to the flooding problem.

I think the appropriate course of action is to request an apartment transfer to a different apartment in our complex. Management isn't being total asshats so I feel like moving out of the complex all together is harsh, but I don't think it's completely insane to say that I want to move.

Eric disagrees. He thinks that management is doing everything they can, and I'm over reacting.

What do you all think? Am I being crazy?

It's definitely not insane. They might say no, of course, which is the case where knowing the details of your lease and state law would be important. But if they have vacancies anyway, they might not even mind. I don't see any realistic worst case that's worse than them just saying no.
