I want to move back due to job relocation, but that is not enough for the landlord. Yes i have informed him of that and he fixed it. Problem is that i used to work as a plumber, and based on my experience, I suspect mold being formed in the crawl space ( between my ceiling and roof). Roof only leaked becasue of abundance of strong and heavy rainfall, meaning roof mustve been leaking with small rain aswell, but it didnt collect enough water to seep through the sheetrock of my ceiling. until this big rainfall.
I politely told them that i have a video of the rain water getting through the soffit and sliding door header into my apt. and i didnt wanted to create any hassle, al li want is to move out. I only have 2 months left on the lease. All my monthly rent has been paid on time.
Not really the answer i was looking for. Given the option to the landlord to "inspect" for mold, doesnt give me the comfort. He could lie. And i wont know about it just so that he could keep me here longer. Theres absolutely nothing else a tenant could do to get out of the lease? What would happen if i was just to move out and break the lease? i know somewhat my credit history would be affected? anything else?Not counting this coming month I have one more month to pay/end lease.
