Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

I would complain to the landlord about the problems in writing, and keep copies for yourself to be used later as proof that the landlord was notified. I would also take pictures of all of the problems, and even have a witness (e.g., family or friend) inspect the premises, make written notes of everything he/she sees, and then sign written notes. Assuming the landlord does nothing in the next 30 days to resolve the problems, then I would inform the landlord that you're moving out, and then take pictures again and move. If the landlord sues you for unpaid rent, then in court you can defend yourself by presenting the written complaint letter(s), the pictures, and have the witness testify about what she saw (and use the notes to help her refresh her memory). Under those circumstances, you'd have a very good chance at winning the lawsuit.

Have I satisfactorily addressed your concerns? If not, then feel free to let me know, as I will be happy to clarify my answer or help with your follow-up questions. In the meantime, please remember to click the green accept button so that I will receive credit and compensation for my time (doing so does not end our discussion). Positive feedback is always appreciated as well. Thank you and good luck!

Hi again.

I'm sorry, but I cannot write the letter for you. If you need actual representation, then you'll need to retain a local attorney near you. While I can answer legal questions, I cannot represent you.
