Can I call a plumber and charge my landlord?

You can but you will (likely) have to pay the plumber then try and get the dough out of the landlord.

What I would suggest is first politely call the landlord and tell them what is going on and give them a chance to fix it. They may come out or send someone out right away if it is an emergency. If it isn’t and/or they do’t tend to it within a reasonable time then l’d
call them and again politely say you’d like to have it fixed and if it would help you can call around and get some “bids” for them and see what they say.

If they drag on and on then you can call around to get some ballpark estimates, hire sorneone, you can ask them to send the bill to XXX but they usually won’t do that, they do not want to risk never getting paid for
work they did and that does happen.
