Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Hi there and thanks so much for requesting me. I answered this for you in another thread. I'll re-post that answer for you below in case you didn't get it...
Good morning. Yes, you did have the right to terminate your lease. With every rental comes the implied warranty
of habitability, which includes the right to the safe, healthy, peaceful and quiet enjoyment of your rented premises. You were clearly not being afforded such enjoyment of your premises with your health at peril due to dangerous dogs being allowed in the complex….and therefore the landlord breached the implied warranty of habitability. This put the landlord in default. You should send the landlord a certified, return receipt requested letter notifying the landlord he was in default and demand that your security deposit
be refunded in full and that you will be making a determination and providing notification shortly of any damages
you may have suffered as a result of the default.
Also, you should be aware that even had you not had a right to terminate and been deemed in default, you still would have no further liability because the landlord re-leased your space. Once re-let, you have no further obligations beyond that point even if in default.
