Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Thank you for your prompt reply and sorry for the delay on my end. I was dealing with plumbers, landlords, and carpet cleaners all day again yesterday.
So I understand I can withhold rent after providing him the proper notification, but what do you do in situations when the problem occurs within 7 days of your rent being due? This is the second time this situation has arisen for me. I cannot withhold this month's rent because there is not enough time to give notice right?
Are the laws regarding mold any different than the statutes you already shared with me? I have a severe allergy to mold (have allergy testing results and am undergoing immunotherapy for a variety of allergies). I cannot live with a moldy bedroom for 20 days, which is the amount of time I have to allow him according to the statute you sent. Is this correct?
