Thank you very much sincerely ***** ***** patience. Okay, generally, this appears to be a violation of the implied covenant (promise) of quiet enjoyment. All residential leases and rental agreements contain an implied covenant of quiet enjoyment. Under the implied covenant of quiet enjoyment, it states that the landlord will not take any action or make any omission which disturbs a tenant’s right to possession and quiet enjoyment of the premises. The warranty does not protect the tenant from the acts of third parties over whom the landlord has no control. However, if the landlord does have control over the situation, but chooses to do nothing, then it is a violation. To help facilitate the situation, you may want to click here to download a “Complaint to Landlord” template and explain how the landlord is in control of the situation and that they are violating this covenant by not taking action. The template only costs $10 and the company that owns the template sends it securely in an email usually 1-2 business days after your purchase. In this case, if the landlord is aware that they have someone who is making meth, but is refusing to do anything to stop it, and it is causing your friend some harm, then your friend may have the option to cancel his lease, move out, and possibly sue for damages.

What other questions did you have for me today?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
