In most areas, there is a housing officer, or a health officer, who will take your complaint about this and get on the landlord's case.

If you need more information -- or if the landlord tries to retaliate against you for doing this, please get in touch with a landlord-tenant attorney in your area, who can give you detailed advice based on all of the facts of your case.  One place you can find a lawyer is our website, http://attorneypages.com
