Electrical Question: How Can I Fix a Voltage Problem in my Electrical Wiring?

I’m moving into a new apartment on the second story of a 3 story Victorian house that is approx 110 years old. The electrical supply box is relatively new which was installed when the landlord made the move to install 220v baseboard heaters. I haven’t been able to figure out how the original wiring is run in most of the apartment. I have a 100A main, two 20amp dual pole breakers, two 15a, a dual pole independent 20a breaker and a 30a breaker all located in the basement. There is also a fuse box with two 15a time delay fuses.
