We recently moved from PA to FL and signed a lease for a property sight unseen. Upon moving into the house, there were MANY things wrong including the A/C unit constantly running, water stains on the ceiling from the A/C running constantly and the windows were screwed shut. We included all of these things wrong and MANY other things on our pre-move in inspection which we had 7 days to complete. The property management immediately sent an A/C serviceman to inspect the unit. He specifically took many pictures and told us the unit was over 11 years old and we were told it was only 2 years old. The management spoke with the service comapny and told us there was nothing wrong is it would be OUR PROBLEM. Our electric bill will be astronomical with this A/C constantly running! Are we able to get out of our 12 year lease or are we subject to this abuse from the management for the next year?

I am renting a house and on Sept 17 my landlord mailed a certified letter stating they intended to do an inspection on 9/22. I never received the letter. No one was home and the house was locked. The landlord entered my home and when she left she did not lock the door and my house was burglarized. I filed a police report and the landlord told the officer my house was locked when she got there and claims to have locked it when she left. She also put a lock box on my door.

My daughter's apartment has severe mold contamination after
My daughter's apartment has severe mold contamination after the building incorrectly attempted to clean up after flooding from apartment next door. Now the restoration place has sealed it off and said everything is contaminated. We have pictures that prove extensive mold was present way before this occurence. We want to break lease and have them pay for any deductibles from renters insurance and get rent back for October. Do we need an attorney or can we try on our own to resolve issue. Our daughter may have had health issues from the mold.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: Sorry Colorado Springs, ColoradoJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Only paperwork was to file with insurance company whp put her up in hotel. I haven't called building management yet because I wanted to have all the information I needed beforehand.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Is this a free service?JA: The Real Estate Lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.Customer: How much for one consult ? is it via computer or call?
I live in Davie, FL., And am a tenant with 3 rescued dogs.i
Hi,I live in Davie, FL., And am a tenant with 3 rescued dogs.i was put in the unfortunate situation of having to relocate here from OK suddenly due to being laid off from a spinal surgery with spinal damage. A friend of mine said a co worker of hers was a landlord looking for a tenant in a very sought after unit. Having no time to fly back and forth, I paid first, last and security and moved in. The landlord said due to the FLL airport all windows and doors would be being replaced for her and that the contractors did his work in a "couple of days" with minimal disruption. I discovered many issues including both doors had broken locks, and several windows were broken to which the landlord replied "we are not spending a penny fixing anything since they will be replaced." I had to duct tape windows shut, my dogs actually got out of the house while I was not home because of the broken doors, the yard was not fully fenced as stated, and the landlord refused to fix any of the locks on the doors leaving me with a rental unit which could easily be broken into since may. I received a letter recently telling me the contractors would be starting construction on this duplex 10/10/2016, and work would be done from 8-5 M-F for 2 weeks with subsequent visits thereafter which means the AC could not be on and workers coming in and out all day every day for the duration.When I expressed concern for the duration of this project, the landlord said said "well, we told you, so take a vacation for these 2 weeks." I told her I could not afford a vacation or to payout of pocket to rent something else. The letter said I could have a sacred room with which to stay during this time with my dogs and figured I could close the rest of the AC ducts except my bedroom so my dogs could have AC and relief from the 90 degree weather and I could lock them in my bedroom when I had to work and she said it was not acceptable. Yesterday she said my animals could not be in the unit at all unless I put them in cages for the duration of project with no AC with workers present for the 90 hours in 90 plus degree weather. I am disabled. I told her if i have to board my dogs I would deduct it from my rent and they threatened to evict me and get a new renter in paying more rent after the construction was completed if I did not pay full rent amount this saturday.While I try to work part-time with my disability, 1-6pm, this whole situation is very inconvenient for me, I will have to be out of the house every day by 8am with my dogs.they are unwilling to try to accommodate me in any way even though I always pay my rent on the first, and they frequently come by unannounced onto the rental property, so much is broken and I also have mold on my ceiling from a leak 3 mos ago they also have not fixed. This appears to be a set up whereby I make all the concessions, financially and inconvenience wise and pay out of pocket for my dogs so they can get their house upgraded for free to rent to someone else after the construction is completed. This is the project in the FLL airport noise reduction program. Please advise.
Currently I am renting apartment in Belmont, MA. The
Currently I am renting apartment in Belmont, MA. The landlord started major renovation of the 2 apartments adjacent to mine. There was no written or verbal notification of the renovation start and finish dates. It's been 2 months since construction started. Day in and out , including Saturdays (like today). The renovation produces a lot of construction noise as well as toxic fumes, dirt in common areas (laundry and hallways) and security issues (as the entrance doors are kept unlocked during the construction hours). When I called the management office to ask them to be proactive and give current tenants notifications when the most of the noise producing jobs are expected , I was told that there is nothing much they can do about it. Are there any laws that protect tenants in cases like this ?
I have been experiencing excessive noise in my apartment in
Hello, I have been experiencing excessive noise in my apartment in Mansfield, TX. I went to the offending tenant who lives above me, and I've gone to the property manager several times, the latest time in writing by certified return receipt. I've documented the dates and times of the excessive noise. The manager apparently speaks to the tenant, but within weeks, sometimes only days, it's excessively noisy again with loud banging, bumping, and thumping all day and night. At this point, I'm done. What recourse do I have to move?

There is a noisy tenant residing above me and has been making loud stomping and banging noises daily as well as into the early morning. I contacted the property manager but nothing has been done-do I have any options?
I am a tenant renting a private residence in Georgia. No
I am a tenant renting a private residence in Georgia. No where in our lease does it allow for our landlord to increase the rent without notice or outside of the renewal terms but yet he has threatened to evict us if we do not pay an additional $250/per month on top of the $1,995 we currently pay (and he has received for this month) because there was weeds in our yard. What rights do we have as tenants? Will his claim hold up in court or can we countersue?
