Expecting it and getting it are two different things.

If you get it, great, but I think the most they would legally be responsible for is prorated rent.

Have Renter's Insurance? Check for "Additional Living Expenses".

The last time they had our house torn up from the electrical fire we checked into a hotel and they took that off our rent.

This.

Landlord is required to make the repair..period. Thankfully, he can't backcharge YOU unless you caused the problem, which is unlikely in this case.

You have the right to move out.

I'd recommend you talk to your attorney about this issue, or your agent if you have renters insurance,

FYI for anyone owning with this issue . If its pex or quest , sometimes after breaking up the entrance exit holes you can crimp on some pex and back and forth it and pull it through since the sand is soup anyway and pull it through . I have fed 3/8 through the inside of 1/2 . 3/8 is enough for most fixtures . use sharkbites vs insert pex fittings

This happened to my father's house. He moved away and it was sitting vacant. He called hysterical about a $800 water bill. I went and checked out. The slab was warm by the fire place. I checked the hot water and it was scorching hot. Thermostat on water heater was bad and boiling out of pressure relief valve and drain which was plumbed under slab. No slab leak.

Tell the landlord you're done renting leaky hot water pipes and fiery kitchens and you'll bill him for the hotel room.

This. We had it happen and they rerouted through the attic. Cheaper than slab work.
