Hello​This is Samuel.Unfortunately, the answer is not necessarily. You would need to prove that the mental anxiety has worsened due to something with the rental - such as1 - Management being harassing without cause.2 - High Crime area3 - Neglect on the part of the management/LL wherein the rental is inhabitable.
