Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you and than you for asking for me.
If your contract is with your property manager, you need to send him written notice and inform him to either provide you the address of the real owner or you will sue him for breach of contract since his name is XXXXX XXXXX lease and you will seek damages
from him for allowing the son to interfere with your peaceable use and enjoyment of your property as your lease guarantees. If the property manager is smart he will give you the address of the landlord for you to send a copy of your notice to and if he does not give the manager the copy of the notice and tell him you are suing him for breach of your lease.
The botXXXXX XXXXXne is regardless of what the property manager now claims, his name is XXXXX XXXXX lease and that makes HIM liable to you and thus he is liable to you for any breach of the lease. Thus, even if he does give you the name of the owner, you need to give both the manager AND the owner a copy of your notice.
If he refuses to cooperate with you, then you have grounds right now to sue him for breach of lease and refund of your deposit as well as any costs incurred in having to move early because of the breach of the lease based on the conduct of the owner's son.
If you have a security deposit, I would also suggest not paying the last month and telling the property manager (again that is who your contract is with, regardless of what he now claims) that you are applying your deposit to your last month's rent. If the owner tries to sue, the court will have to dismiss because the owner did not have any contractual relation with you and there was no disclosure the manager was only his agent, so you reasonably relied on the fact the manager was indeed the landlord.
