Across the city, thousands of tenants have logged onto JustFix.nyc, ticked off descriptions of maintenance issues in their apartments and generated an attorney-vetted memo reminding their landlord of its legal obligations.
Receiving the notice via certified mail from JustFix compels many companies to make repairs, the nonprofit said. And for those who do not have such success, the JustFix team says it is close to introducing a new service on its app, designed to make suing apartment owners as simple as paying the IRS through Turbo Tax.
