Landlord advice - my absentee landlady lives in Russia and is refusing to pay for emergency plumbing that I needed as my kitchen floor was flooded with gunk from the pipes (blockage in the pipes). I moved into the place ~6mo ago and the blockage was most likely due to issues preceding my stay here. The contract states that the landlord is responsible for emergency repairs - but she's just flat out refusing. What recourses do I have in this situation?
