Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
Do you know what the smell was from? What did the landlord say when you reported this/
Thank you for the reply. In a situation like this,the landlord needs to be placed on notice about the issue and given a chance to correct and remedy the rental. The property has to be habitable and if it is not, the landlord has to fix the problem or release you from the lease. If you left, because of this, you can demand compensation for any costs incurred but MUST inform them of this and let them correct it. If they can not, then they need to release you and you will not be liable. In addition, you may want to bring in a 3rd party to investigate the smell and determine what it is, so you have evidence to show and support it is harmful and you can not stay there.
