Customer Question

Hi There. I am hoping you can help me out here. I am wondering if we even have a suite to file, We moved in to a home owned my AmericanHomes4Rent on Nov 5th. Long story short, This place was pictured to have a fully fenced back yard and it is not. The company claims they are "working on it". Now here we sit, with two cats and a dog that would really like to utilize the back yard, and cannot. Now we have had strays in the back yard as well. We are in Georgia. Do we have grounds to bring law suite???

Yes I do believe you have grounds to file suit. Your claim would be fraud and deceptive trade practices. You relied on photos in purchasing the home and the key element is missing.

Do we have a right to refuse to pay the rent coming due the 1st of Dec??
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 2 months ago.

You can withhold rent if you had given the landlord and opportunity to install the fence and a reasonable timeline. And then you can install the fence yourself and withhold rent
