We just moved into an apartment and it reeks of cigarette smoke.
We just moved into an apartment and it reeks of cigarette smoke. The apartment complex has acknowledged it and has tried to fix it to no avail. They are willing to move us to another apartment when one opens up in a month. However, they won't pay to help us move or recompense us in any way. Am I right to expect compensation? What are their obligations as Landlords?

I rented a room to a tenant in Boynton Beach, Palm Beach County, Florida, weekly rent due on Wednesdays. Tenant picked the due date.Verbal lease, told him if rent wasn't on my desk on every Wednesday morning, he was out. I was not going to ask him for it. Rent due on Wednesday, Oct 21. He did not pay. I caught him leaving the house around 12:30 AM on Friday morning, Oct. 23. I told him I wanted the rent. He went and got it.At 2:45 AM on that same morning (Fri, 10.23.15), tenant left house. He showed back up at approximately 9:30 PM last night on Tuesday, 11.03.15. (Rent was not paid on Wednesday, Oct. 28).I had the lock changed and he was attempting entry. I told him he had abandoned the place and was not coming in. He wouldn't leave property and I called the police. They made me take him back and said he had established residency because his things were in the house. (He never changed his driver's license nor got mail here)In addition, the room reeks from him being unclean. He left opened food all over the room.Now police say I have to go through eviction process. I say he abandoned premise. (Although now they have let him back in)Where do I stand with this?.
Tenant dispute re. common utility payments heaters 1 cheapView more real estate law questions
Tenant dispute re. common utility payments for water heaters 1 cheap gas &1 costly electric for 2 units in same house.All tenants use gas heater for hot water in washing machine & 1 unit's shower, kitchen etc. The other unit has costly electric water heater for shower, kitchen etc. Tenant w/ cheap gas heater only wants to pay that bill & small portion of electric bill for lights etc.& let other tenant pay huge electric bill for her heater. It's happenstance that 1 unit has cheap gas heater & other unit bad luck to have costly electric water heater which were both installed by landlord at different times. Both units were rented without regard to water heaters. We share the water bill divided by the number of people living in the house.Which is fairer to all parties concerned: Does the unit which has the cheap gas heater get to pay less than the unit with the electric heater even though water usage for showers & kitchen are more or less the same? Or should all utility bills gas, electric & water be divided evenly between all parties involved?
