Ask a Landlord-Tenant Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Does your daughter have a written lease? Has your daughter made a written demand for the necessary repairs?
Thank you for the additional information.
If there is a written lease then the landlord is responsible for the maintenance and repair obligations contained in the lease agreement.
He can not force her to move to avoid the lease obligations.
Your daughter should make a written demand for the required repairs. If he still refuses then she should sue for breach of the lease.
She can sue in small claims court. Small claims court is designed to be user friendly so that you can present a claim without an attorney. Also, it moves much more quickly than regular court.
You are very welcome. If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (Excellent or Good) so that I am credited for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
