Good afternoon Rebecca,
I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
A landlord may be able to inspect your unit on occasion and upon giving your reasonable advanced notice, however, a landlord cannot demand that you not have boxes in your unit, nor can they terminate your lease because of dust, marks on the wall or boxes in your rental unit.
You are responsible to replace burned out light-bulbs that burn out during your lease---but you cannot be forced to replace them while your lease is active. You are not required to buy your own smoke alarms, but if the unit has them---as it should, and the batter wears out you are responsible for putting a new battery in the unit.
You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.
I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. As I am not an employee of JustAnswer, please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am compensated for assisting you. Thank you in advance.
I wish you and yours the best in 2016,
