Q: While my son and his girlfriend were visiting us over the holidays, a water main in their apartment burst and flooded their apartment. All of their possessions -- clothes, furniture, everything -- was ruined by the water or the resulting mold. Is the landlord responsible for replacing these items? --Sharon P.
