I am curious of my legal standing in disputing a termination

I am curious of my legal standing in disputing a termination of lease, including no penalties, and non-payment of further rent while vacating.8 months into a 12 month lease we had a City of Portland inspector from the Bureau of Developmental Services inspect our apartment for possible code violations. This was prompted by mold on our bathroom ceiling and my inclination was they were in violation. I bathroom has neither a window, nor a vent. Regardless of mold, which was covered in their mold addendum, it creates a hospitable environment for such and no way to properly manage it.The city report also covered some 15 violations, 4 of which were health, safety sanitation violations. Including construction being made without permits. Our apartment was not deemed unlivable but these issues are extremely concerning nonetheless.I have proposed the solution of our 30 days notice commencing on written approval of their agreement to no contractual early termination penalty, full refund of our deposit, and non payment of rent during our process of vacating.I am curious of our legal grounds moving forward, i do not wish to seek damages beyond what i have outlined in our separation agreement. I would like to move forward with finding and securing a new apartment to live in, without making a hasty uninformed decision.

Hello, I have a roommate in my apartment who is classified as a subtenant because he is not on the lease and pays me rent every month. I told him today that my other roommate and I have been talking and wanted to ask him to leave in thirty days. He claims that he has squatters rights and that I have no legal way to evict him from the property. He's only been living on the property for 5 months. I was wondering how accurate he is in me not being able to go to court after he neglects a thirty day notice given to him

My wife and I moved to this area from Florida last January

My wife and I moved to this area from Florida last January 2016, and we rented a house under a one year lease. However, due to a job promotion, we need to terminate our lease a few months early. I can give the landlord a full 60 day notice, but we do not want to lose our security deposit. Should we use the security deposit to cover the last month we are in the house, (the lease states that one is not permitted to use the security deposit as the last months deposit), or is there a way to work it out ahead of time with the landlord so we don't lose our deposit ?

My apartment complex is refusing to accept my rent. I transferred to a different apartment in the same complex. They are trying to charge me $454.00 to replace the carpet in the last apartment stating there were stains that could not be removed despite my cleaning. I asked to see their pictures and the pictures do not look like the one I took. I am not sure what to do.
