Tubs and Christie about your stupid landlord:
You must notify him in writing of any problem (lack of hot water, problems with your bathroom, etc.) after 14 days if the problem is not satifactorily resolved you can file a rent escrow. You can't just stop paying rent (he could evict you) but if you go to the housing authority you can get forms and advice. (I think the threat of filing a rent escrow should be enough to get some action.)
Here's the actual
law which addresses loss of hot water.
