I'm in a rental house in Oregon, and we've been having a plumbing issue. Every time we run the washer, sewage backs up into the bathtub and toilet. My landlord keeps saying he "will call his buddy", but hasn't pulled through. I'm tired of mopping up shit from the bathroom floor, so we've got a real plumber on his way.
So, there's a provision in my lease that states "landlord is not responsible for any plumbing clog caused by the tenant or tenant's guest"... My partner is wholly confused about how this will work out payment wise. How are we supposed to know if we caused a clog? Will the plumber tell us something like "stop flushing diapers and whole heads of lettuce" (we haven't)? What if my landlord says tough shit, it's you who has to pay?
